Snapped Bolt? / Water pump? (Pics)

Alright so I just wanted reassurance on this... I've done pretty much every fix I could that relates to overheating (Non-heaadgasket) and while I was at it I noticed a bit of drippy drippies.



I'm 99% sure it is the water pump, just want a second opinion before i tear off the top of the motor. :] the leak is flowing down right between the block and the belt pulley. Pretty much where the pump dwells.

Also when I do tear this all apart, How can I get this bolt out? I'd do the whole bit with untightning it left loosey style but the head of it snapped off leaving me with nothing. Example in picture heh


(Belt tensioner bolt)

Thanks in advance fellas.

From the looks of it the water pump is definitely donezo. Take the opportunity to do the Tbelt and call it maintenance/repair instead of straight repair ;)

About the broken tensioner bolt, i would call the local honda dealership. In my experience regular autopart stores can only guess at what bolts/washers they have in stock will work, where Honda has the computerized diagram to get EXACTLY the right bolt.

Good luck.

Bolt go to Honda, and it does look like ur water pump from that angle, like ludimusprime said u might as well do ur timming belt if u haven't done it yet, if u have never done it before I would highly recommend u getting alldata for ur car, it comes in real handy and gives u all the info u need

Much appreciated. You guys have any idea how I can get the bolt out though? I can get another bolt no prob but I'm not sure how I'm gonna get that first one out.

Should I just tap the sucker out? I've tried freezing it with some autozone spray that supposably "freezes" stuck bolts so they can be broken apart like ice. Yeah, I wasted 9 bucks.
