Nope, just the one without the plastic impellar. Anywhere online or from the dealer. You'll want to replace the gasket and such too, but most places have a kit.

The deal with the water pump is, it just goes. Q I think you could handle doing it yourself. The hard part is just getting at the bolts for it and removing the fan. But yeah a mechanic could do it for you.
