98 1.8. Replaced thermostat and now there is a leak. I will dig into that later.
Real question is regarding the water pump belt. Car continued to overheat as I drove it home from work (where I did the thermo change in the parking deck). Shut off car and rolled into a convenient parking lot and took a look. Noticed that there was no longer a belt on the water pump....

SOOO - how do I replace the belt without removing the bumper? I cannot find any videos or posts about that specific process.

Any idea why it may have come off?
