2010 CC 2.0L TSI Coolant leak that has been getting worse over last 4 months. Can't find the source. It seems deep in the middle of the engine. Look at video to see fluid coming out of what looks like a drain hole. Engine is off and leaking. Leaks worse with engine running with system under pressure which makes sense. Any ideas?

x2 water pump is the most likely cause, very common issue. It started many years ago with B5 platform cars, and it's still happening to this very day with the EA888 engines. My MK7 had the waterpump replaced under warranty.

"Thank you" Hirnbeiss and Newman'sown for your replies. You were both exactly right. I finally got the pump out and saw how bad the seals are damaged. It totally explains the leak. Appreciate your help.
