Water pump leaking

No, I'm not kidding. Just went outside and a few drops of coolant from the water pump weep hose.

The thing is literally falling apart today.

Rode it 2 weeks ago and nothing was wrong.

Today, noticed the front diff rear seal dripped a couple drops on the floor.
No big deal

Took it out for a ride around the neighborhood and the regulator crapped out.
again, no big deal.

Just walked out in the garage and coolant on the floor...LOLOLOL.

I'm a bit afraid to go back out there.


Anyways, haven't read about any water pump seal failures.

I took off the ski plates a week or so ago to clean it out and see the waterpump tucked up in there. Looks fun.
Who has done this and what is involved with doing it myself? On a 850 XP not any other sportsman.

Ya know, to think about it. It did lose some coolant about 2-3 rides ago. Not a much and I wouldn't have noticed had the overflow tank not been a touch low and caught my eye. I've put many hours and miles on it since. No coolant loss.

I don't know about an 850xp. AKStew did it on a 700 EFI and did a great write up about it. Don't know if it is the same pump or not but it could at least give you an idea of how Polaris water pumps are put together.

How to Change the Water Pump Seal and Oil Seal on 2006 700 EFI - Pics Inside

This a project I will soon be undertaking too. So I have bookmarked this particular thread.

I'd like to see someone that has done one on a 850xp. This is a different engine all together.

Let it warm up today and no green but there was dark brown water dripping in that spot. Slightly coolant smelling. Engine oil is spotless.

coolant in the radiator is clean and green.

Hmm. This wouldn't be the 1st water pump that dripped a little and then stopped.

Time to run that drain tube up in the pod and keep an eye on it.

Does anyone find it ODD that the voltage regulator and the water pump went bad together??

Like maybe the stator is wet from coolant?

I've ridden it twice now around the yard for various duties and all that leaks out the water pump drain is a couple drips of blackish/brown water.

Hmm.

I did the water pump seal on my 850, its not too bad of a job, pull the gas tank and just the stator cover, and stator and replace the seal, watch out for that yellow coolant line and make sure it lines up so it doesn't break

Couple questions, if you don't mind.

When yours leaked what did it do? As in did it let go and leak a lot of fluid or dd it just drip a couple drops like mine did. I see no green anymore, just blackish/brown water.

Also, if you could, can you write out what I need to do to replace the seal by steps? I don't have a manual but I'm pretty handy. Also what parts do I need to order?

Thank you for your time.
