Ok guys so I'm changing my belt and tensioner and noticed my water pump is starting to weep and leak a bit of coolant. Miswell change it while the belt and everything is already off. My question is do I have to drain the coolant down so when I pull the pump out, coolant doesn't come flowing down, or just pull the 2 bolts and pull the old one out? Just curious as to what you guys who've done your water pumps before have done, Thanks! :S:

You need to drain the coolant first, but your still going to have a bit pouring out when you remove the pump.
