    Lucky you found it before it caused any more damage. I hope you managed to get all the broken impellor pieces out of the block.

    Changed my Cambelt at 52k miles and the impellor part was intact on mine, but there was signs of slow weeping of coolant around the seals of the impellor, so glad I changed mine, got a metal one after reading comments on here.

    You've had a lucky escape there mate, I got mine done at 65k and it looked fine. Also opted for the metal one for piece of mind.
