Water Pump Leaking

Postby wellman » Fri Mar 27, 2015 4:32 pm



Hello,
It appears the water pump seal may be leaking on my 2000 GL1500SE. Are the small rectangular openings on both sides of the drain plug weep holes? I am very familiar with water pumps on lots of vehicles but not the Goldwing. Don't see any hoses leaking and there is a very slow drip coming from one of these holes. If I need to replace water pump, does anyone have a suggestion as to best place to buy one?
Thanks

I don't know for sure if those are the weep holes but I'd bet the water pump needs replacing. As a minimum, you will be taking it off to inspect.

I'd go to https://www.partzilla.com to buy a new water pump. All you will need is a part number. Retail is 4178.25 and Partzilla has them for $130.39. you can also try your local Honda Dealer.

Are the small rectangular openings on both sides of the drain plug weep holes? Yes, but they are like deflectors. But the weep hole is there. They are model specific by year. 97-2000 # 19200-MAM-A60
Yes partzilla 130.39...... Didn't check shipping...
Ebay $138.00

Enjoy the ride. They are all good, just some better than others.

The weep hole is underneath and far back on the pump.
