Water pump pulley

Recommended Posts

Anyone replaced the plastic water pump pulley for an aluminium version ? 

Any recommendations 

I've found a very nice one but £50 with the postage is a tad steep as i'm not to fussed about it being

BMW sell them with composite impellers now. I've used 2 of them now on 2 E46's. 

That's where my money would go.

Don't use Circoli from Eurocarparts. Absolute crap.

I've bought the OE water pump, this thread was to replace the plastic pulley the belt runs on that

fits onto the water pump  :)

The pulley doesn't come with the pump though.

Sorry, I realised that you were talking about the pulley and not the impeller after posting and edited it immediately but you beat my edit.

What's wrong with the plastic pulley. Once you have had it off once and didn't break it, pop grease where it mounts and it will always come off ok again. I've done a few now without issue.
