Coolant leak, V10 Tdi

Hello all, I have a 2006 Touareg with the BWF v10 tdi. I have a coolant leak coming from a small hole near the water pump sealing cover. I am looking for assistance in finding out if this small hole is indicating my water pump is bad or if I need to persue another source of the leak. Anything helpful is welcomed.

Yep that hole leads to a chamber between the coolant pump seal and the seal into the engine.
So yes that is the tell tail hole.
See the leaking pump from mine.

Hello
I think I have a water pump problem on my 2007 v10 touareg. I tried to find the hole to see if mine is leaking too, but I cant seem to find it.
The symtoms I have right now is that my coolant is dissepearing but no puddle under the car. The car doesnt need to be running for the coolant loss to appear and my oil level rises.

The weep hole is behind the front crankshaft damper (pully looking disc)
