Could be the water pump gasket, or perhaps the heater pipe going into the back of the pump.

Try using a small mirror to see if you can isolate where its coming from.

Yep they will do that......

Yep I second that.Another place could just be your bottom hose to water pump clamp not tight.The heater pipe has an O ring which is about 15mm inside the back of the pump and these can become hard.The bye pas hole for the bearing could have also failed,this is at the front below centre shaft.

You are lucky mate. The last time I rooted a waterpump I also did the head gasket at the same time :)

Re: leaking coolant

How can you test the waterpump to know if that is the problem ? My friend has the same problem

Re: leaking coolant

How do you TEST the waterpump, or come to the conclussion that the waterpump is the problem, instead of just going out to buy one...

Re: leaking coolant

Failed water pumps will usually leak from the weep hole on their shaft when the bearing fails or make a high pitched squeak.
