I think my water pump may be broken as when the engine runs I can hear a clicking noise.
i've taken off the fan belt to stop the fan clutch turning the pump and the noise is still there, but i've been told that it could be the coolant flow turning the impeller and thus the pump is still turning.
My fan coupling is too tight to undo so i can't just remove the pump without taking the car to a dealer.
Is there a way to stop the pump at all other than that?
Also is it safe to run the engine with the water pump disabled/disconnected?
Many thanks if you can help, I'm having a real problem with this.
