What is the cost of replacing a water pump on a Toyota Prius (2005)

Thank you for trusting Just Answer with your Toyota question. Are you referring to the engine water pump or the inverter coolant pump?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

The dealer service manager said there was evidence of water in the coolant, which indicated a defective seal,

, and would require a water pump replacement

Expert:  Boxer54 replied 6 years ago.
Hmmmm. That really doesn't make a whole lot of sense as the coolant is basically water with additives in it. Any chance you could verify which pump as this will make a big difference in the price. Did they give you a part number?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I will have to call the service manager tomorrow and get sme more specific information on the problem, and then respond to Boxer 54

For Boxer 54.Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, but I had a problem contacting the dealer Service Manager. It was the engine water pump.On inspection, they found a crustation of coolant on the engine block near the water pump and figured it was leaking out.

The water pump on the engine should cost around (plus or minus 15 percent) $300. It depends on where you are.
