Was doing my first v6 cambelt change and one of the screws in the gard would not come off....it was rounded already so I used the dremel and cut a line in the screw so I can put a flat head blade in. When I turned the screw, there was a crack and all the coolant came out.....here are the pictures.....I am assuming I have put a hole in the water pump and not the block

yes...that looks the one. I was debating whether to change the water pump...I guess this answers it!

its around £70-£80 for water pump so worthwhile replacing it as its all in bits

Mine had a Plastic blade where all V6 should have a metal one ..................check it while its in bits
