Water pump weep hole leaking oil

Im rebuilding the topend on my sons rzr 800 and noticed oil and water leaking from water pump weep hole. I know I have to change seals but do I need to pull the motor to do this,are can it be done with the motor in place.

Re: Water pump weep hole leaking oil

if it is just coolant leaking you do not need to pull the engine to replace the water pump seal but if oil is leaking there is an oil seal 5412455 on the inside of the magneto/engine cover' i thought i read on hear replacement requires engine removal. good luck

Re: Water pump weep hole leaking oil

You might verify with someone else on here but I tried taking off the stator outer cover and it would not come off while it was in the machine, also the part number was from an 09.

I had the exact same thing happen to my 09 RZR S I had before I went xp. I took it to dealer since it was still under warranty and they fixed the problem and the engine did not have to come out.

Re: Water pump weep hole leaking oil

It's an 09 also,so I guess I'll just have to pull the motor out.
Just a little more work but it's worth it.
Thanks

I guess I'll try to change it on the machine if I can't I'll just pull it out.

If it's oil for sure... You do have to pull the motor...

Wrench Re: Water pump weep hole leaking oil

The same thing happen to my 2011 800,I did not pull the engine,just take your time make sure the bore & shaft are free of any knicks, put a small amount of blue rtv on oil seal & press in flush with bore, it is always better to press in rather than beat in especially the waterpump seal, the seal should be centerd around the shaft when completed,if its not centerd it will leak,I also used a pressed in grease fitting to vent the weep hole with clear hose to keep from doing this again
