2007 V10 BLE waterpump

Hello everyone,
My problem is that my coolant is dissepearing but theres no puddle on the ground. The engine doesnt need to run for the coolant to dissepear. The car probably loses from max. to min. of coolant every day. I havent driven it since the problem came waiting for dealers appointment. The strange thing is that the engine oil level isnt abnormally high also, but I know it is going to the engine, because when I got the car back from the dealer and did a oil change coolant came out first when removing the drain plug. Maybe it doesnt show very well in the oil level because the oil pan is pretty big, but I know its in there.
So my question is that when I looked at the manual I have (ElsaWin) and a post in this forum I noticed that there is a small hole for detecting if the water pump seals have gone bad, if so then coolant should come out of there, but I cant seem to find it. Just to verify that it is the water pump. I tried to use my phone to record and then look if I aimed it in the right place, but no luck with that. So I was thinking maybe its like halfway behind the harmonic balancer, so thats maybe why I dont see it. One memeber in this forum has made a good picture of the small hole: https://www.clubtouareg.com/forums/f9...di-261938.html
I attached some photos from the manual aswell where the hole should be.
If someone has changed the waterpump I would appreciate any advice. I know that the whole front end has to come apart.
