Yep, every 40k.

Mine was replaced at 30k and 70k. The second time the waterpump bearings were near the edge of seizing at 40k miles of use!

I have have been inclined to be safe rather than sorry, seen too many Astra G's belts (water pump or idler pulleys) let go before 60k.
H's and J's are different
