Water Pump Problem

When removing water pump from '91 318is, the housing cracked apart when I screwed in the two bolts used to push it out.Both places (12 & 6 o'clock)are broken completely.NOW what?!!!

If you mean the water pump housing itself, well Im afraid a new one is about all you can do.

Its the two screw holes in the water pump itself. When I screwed the bolts in to pop the old pump out, the entire part of the pump that contains those screw holes fractured and came completely off. Now I can't get the old water pump out of the block.
