Hey everyone. Today we are looking at more Failed Volkswagen Parts. This video is about how VW water pumps fail. We are specifically talking about the water pumps driven by a timing belt. I have done a video about how the CCTA water pumps fail, if you want to check that out. The timing belt driven water pumps were very common just a few years ago. There are also serpentine belt driven pumps that will fail in similar ways.
