aux. water pump

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure about that. The aux water pump is a belt driven water pump located on the left side of the head. The tensioner is that weird looking bolt on round thing on the side of the engine next to the left-most inlet tract. Mine disintegrated the other day:

i do think this site is to golf orientated not alot of help with raddo's

This is true in my eyes..........it needs changing really but all the info for the engine will be available here. Gotta remember that the corrado is a very specific car with unique parts

Anyway back to the issue! Water pumps are belt driven-on most engines, aux pumps are electrical, and yes help cool the system after switching off. I had a clio 16v and this had the same thing, only it packed up so i by-passed it. As long as the main water pump is working, imo, your car will be fine! :)
