  10. Is this coolant leaking from water pump? (photos included)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The coolant was lost to the point that the reservoir turned dry (at least 1.5 Litre was lost) during a couple short trips around town. The coolant was dripping off the snug mount bracket. Looking further up, I saw that it was dripping off one of the oil pan bolt right above the snug mount...
