Is your car starting to run hot? Over time, the bearings in the water pump begin to wear, causing them to eventually fail and seize the water pump. With most of the MK1 MINI models reaching 150,000 miles or more, it's not uncommon to see water pumps on their last legs. This kit includes everything you need to replace your old tired water pump with a brand new unit. Here's what the kit includes:
Water Pump and Gasket
Thermostat Housing Gasket
12 oz. Redline Water Wetter Corrosion Treatment
1 gallon of Coolant (must be mixed with distilled water)
Expansion Tank or Thermostat Housing Cap
Upper and Lower Radiator Hoses
NOTE: In order to remove the serpentine belt, we recommend using the belt tensioner tools PEL-NME5994 for base model Cooper models and PEL-NME5993 for Cooper S models.
Is your car starting to run a little hot? Is it overheating while sitting at idle? It's possible you may need to replace your water pump. An easy way to check your water pump is to look underneath the car and check for water seepage out of the pump. This means that water is leaking past the bearing and seals, indicating the pump is on its way out. Another way to check is to squeeze and hold the upper radiator hose for a few seconds (CAUTION: the hose may be hot) while the car is running. If you feel no pressure building up, it is a sign that water is not circulating and the pump may be bad. These units are brand new, not rebuilt.
