Question about BMW 325
If the pump bearing is worn out, it will be leaking coolant. If it is not leaking coolant, then the looseness must be the fan clutch. You want to replace this before it comes completely apart or it will destroy the radiator when it comes apart.
You will need to make or buy a tool to hold the water pump pulley from turning while you unscrew the fan clutch from the water pump. If you have a drill and a grinder, just look at a picture of the tool on a website that sells them and you can figure out how to make one for a few bucks.
That big nut on the fan clutch that screws onto the water pump shaft is left-handed thread.
