I took off the front pipe , drained the coolant by the bottom bolt that holds the water pump cover on , took off the water pump cover , took off the impeller , pulled out the old seal , put in new , replaced cover and front pipe etc , filled just the rads with fluid and JOB DONE in 20mins, piece of piss ! btw i'm a coward usually but this was easy .
Yea I know i should of replaced loads of other bits but it aint leakin and i'm happy for now
edit again, still leaks a little , gotta do the job proper now
edit yet again !! : sorted it now , i had put the seal in the wrong way round as did the last person !
put the seal in with the hollow not flat face towards you .
