Can Am X3 water pump seal:
The seal won’t seat without the Thrust washer:
A few of us have that nagging water pump leak.
Dealer and Can Ams response is “it’s not that bad, don’t worry about it.”
I’m concerned about it.
Reported at 5000 miles it goes from a drip to a pint of coolant loss per 500 miles.
Somethin’ Sinister on the Can Am forums was cool and responded to my thread and posted what he found.
The leaky water pumps on X3s are missing the seal thrust washer.
The thrush washer pulls the spring pressured seal in to seat.
If the dealer mechanic is just a parts changer they’ll miss it.
Bert’s missed mine. X3 came out in worse condition than it went in.
