Go to your parts store, and most can print you up instructions to use whan you buy the pump. if not, you might try alldata, ($25/yr) for everything about your car for a year, or buy a haynes or chilton manual for your car (also about $25)

autozone.com may have that repair guide available as well.

99 volkswagon leaking antifreeze at housing site


If by housing you mean water pump, that is an indication the water pump is worn and needs replacement. Water pumps are built in such a way that when the bearings become worn, coolant will leak from a weep hole built into the pump as a indicator that the water pump is failing, but gives you a chance to drive it to a repair shop before complete failure. Keep an eye on the coolant level until water pump is replaced. Do not delay this repair... Best of luck resolving this problem.

Water Pump leaks from the front end of the Wagon.


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
  1. Determine the Reason for Water Pump Failure
    • 1 Repair a water pump by checking your car for a failure in the bearings. You can test for bearing failure by seeing if there is any play in the shaft that is connected to the electrical fan blades, as well as the drive pulley to the pump itself.
    • 2 If you notice any free play in the shaft or the pulley, you will need to take the pump apart and replace the bearings.


    • 3 Determine if the water pump failure is due to a leak in the casing. Examine the water pump housing for leaking or water stains in the drainage hole next to the pulley.
    • 4 If water is dripping from this hole, then the seals inside the pump need to replaced in order to repair the pump.
    Remove the Water Pump for Repair
    • 5 Allow the engine to cool completely before removing any part of the cooling system. Never open a radiator cap or plug while the engine is still warm.
    • 6 Disconnect the car battery. This will prevent the electrical fan from turning on while you are under the hood.
    • 7 Drain the radiator of all fluid and disconnect the radiator hoses. Collect the fluid with a plastic container and keep it in a safe place until you are ready to put it back into the radiator.
    • 8 Remove the fan assembly. This will include the shroud, the fan and the fan belt. Disconnect the electrical leads for the fan.
    • 9 Remove the pulley for the fan belt as well in order to have access to the water pump.
    • 10 Use a socket set to remove the water pump from its engine mount.
    • 11 Open the housing for the water pump and replace the seals or bearing as necessary. Some auto parts stores carry repair kits that have both the seals and bearings for specific types of water pumps.
    • 12 Reassemble the cooling system by replacing the water pump, pulley, fan belt, fan assembly and radiator hoses. Refill the radiator with the fluid.
    • 13 Start the engine to see if the water pump repair was successful. Check for leaks before you take the car out on the road.

I am not aying that this is what I think it is but I found this on your year BMW

Some BMW, Volkswagen and Audi cars have a common problem that the water pump impeller becomes dislodged from the input shaft of the water pump leaving the water pump looking ok from the outside, but failed on the inside. If your car experiences this problem it will over heat rapidly much like a thermostat failure. For exact specific repair procedures for this repair visit our online repair manual page.




Failed BMW, VW, Audi Water Pump Troubleshooting Procedure
  • Check Water Pump Operation - To troubleshoot this problem first drain about a half a gallon out of the cooling system, next remove the thermostat from the engine. With the thermostat out start the engine (stand back) coolant should be forced out of the thermostat port, if not the impeller has dislodged itself from the water pump input shaft and needs to be replaced. To replace the water pump finish draining the remainder of engine coolant, remove the serpentine belt and coolant hoses. Next remove the water pump mounting bolts and remove the water pump. Clean gasket surfaces and reinstall new water pump and reassemble. Refill with coolant and recheck system, top off engine coolant after it has re-cooled.

Water pump is leaking and causing the engine to overheat. The pump has been "repaired" what shall i do now?


obviously the water pump was never fixed properly if it is still leaking, take it back to were you had it repaired and have them repair it properly. A number of problems could cause your vehicle to over heat.
-water pump not working properly.
-low antifreeze.
-air lock.
- rad cap not working properly.
-thermos stat not working properly.
