Water pump 300D

Going over the water pump replacement in the Haynes manual for my 83' 300D. I'm confused as the manual says to unbolt the water pump housing bolts. Do you need to remove the pump and housing together, or can the pump be unbolted from the housing for removal?

An "impeller" is whats called the "water pump". The impeller is unbolted from the water pump housing and replaced. The "housing" stays bolted to the engine.

Thanks,

As far as I can tell the Haynes has you unbolting the entire housing from the block. Mistake on their part?

Huh, I've changed out a few on my 240Ds, dont believe the 617 is any different as far as changing the water pump (impeller), dont know why you would need too remove the housing. Be careful not to break any of the bolts, or you will be taking the housing off:

Yes, be careful, I snapped off a bolt during re-installation, use anti seize compound. Anyway, here are pics of what's on the car and a new water pump.

Although you can and should be able to remove the impeller only, in every case that I have done this (4x) the impeller has galvanically stuck itself to the alloy housing and I have had to remove both together and separate with a thin knife. My advice is to apply some non-hardening sealer to the joint and use anti-seize on all the bolts.
