Hi so i noticed my weep hole is leaking coolant. My question is do i have to take the whole side cover off or is there a way to replace the seals and just remove the water pump housing.


thanks guys

The whole side cover has to come off im afraid. In fact dont take that as gospel. I cant quite remember but im pretty sure u need to take it off.

Yes the cover does have to come off I'm actually fixing mine as we speak. I'm also changing the bearing since it feels a little rough. My shaft also shows some grooves and wear. Figured I would just replace it all while I'm there.
