Question about 1996 BMW 318
4 bolts are reoved.
tried to release using gentle taps wth hammer
& screwng in the 4 jacking holes-the cast iron on the pump broke off.
tried using screw driver top and bot.
tried using 2 claw hammers.
water pump barings had gone, and was leaking coolant, i fear that the join between the head an the pump has corroded and fused. i'm 6'3" and im worried about causing more damage when trying again.
Use a paint spatula (Metal) and tap it in between the pump and housing and kep tapping and moveing it in different directions, then go to the other side and do the same, someone may have put silicone on the pump before. if you need more help getting it off let me know and make sure you have ALL the bolts out.
