Not driven car for a few days, this morning decided to check oil, etc. before taking it out and discovered that the coolant tank was EMPTY! Changed the rad and thermostat recently and filled with new coolant and was keeping an eye out to see if any coolant leaks/loss anywhere, all was fine. Topped up coolant to the required level (about 1 litre) and started the engine, immediately noticed water dripping from under the AC comp area, stuck my head under the engine and noticed the water appears to be coming from behind the black plastic cover to the aux/timing belts. Not a waterfall but just a drip-drip!
Question: Can I replace the water pump with just removing the aux belt without upsetting the timing, etc? Basically, easyfix is what I am looking for.
