    Noticed coolant over the rad and on the engine cover today! had a quick look and found its from the AUX pump and the pipe connecting to it!

    i'm going to clean this up over the weekend and check if there any loose connections.... but do you reckon it needs replacing and will it be ok to drive?

    Its the after run pump.... they do have a habit of going and IIRC cost around the £100 to replace...

    As for being safe to drive, obviously if its leaking then you will loose coolant which is not that good... plus if you don't do a cool down run after ragging the car the turbo could suffer long term... take it easy and you should be ok but not knowing how bad its leaking then I couldn't really comment with authority...
