Thumbs down BA water pump o-ring

Just had a warranty job done today for the water pump o-ring and its common, if any of u BA'sters have a coolant leak from the front, 98% chance its the o-ring.

Re: BA water pump o-ring

It's to do with the bypass pipe sitting off centre in the waterpump. the block is being altered where the pipe mounts to fix the problem.

Re: BA water pump o-ring

Problem is caused by pipe mounts been over tightened which twists the mounts causing the o ring to be flatened at the bottom allowing it leak.

Re: BA water pump o-ring

The only clue I have is your handle mate - I take it that this is for the I6?

Mine (BA XR6) had a couple of spots of coolant on the floor after a relatively short run (150km).
'O' ring was replaced at the free 3000km service and has been fine ever since.

Hey SPALDING GREEN, your nick doesn't have anything to do with leaking coolant by any chance does it? Where did you hear that this was the ploblem?I have replaced many waterpump Orings on BA's, but never gave it a second thought as to why they leak from there so much.

AU's were the same though they leaked from the waterpump Oring too. Although maybe not quite so much. They liked to shit out radiators.

I took my car for a work related drive up to Swan hill and back (from Melbourne) in the same day. Went down to the car the next morning and the entire coolant tank and emptied itself. Got the car towed and 1/2 a day later it was ready to be picked up from the service center good as new. Yup a water pump o-ring.

I'm back to carrying 2 litres of water and coolant in the boot of my car, I thought I gave up that habit when I got rid of the AUII

45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
