Warranty coverage - should I contribute to work needed?

I bought a Saab 93, 06 Reg from a dealer in January with 12-months warranty and 49K on the clock. On Saturday it broke down and I had to flatbed it back to the dealer. Diagnosis is that it needs a new Water Pump and Cam belt. The AA Warranty (Gold) will cover the cost of the waterpump but not the Cam belt replacement as they feel this is is a standard service interval replacement part and therefore I should pay £120 for a new one. The service interval for Cam belt replacement for this part is 70Kmiles - so still a way off (I am at 50Kmiles) and the faluty waterpump apparently led to a deteoration of the belt. Should I be asking the dealer to pay for this?

Typical problems with this disaster zone of an engine. Get it fixed and get rid asap before the next catastrophe.
