Nope, only a leak was noticed while it was at BOR working on the FF, said it was coming from the lower hose fitting on the water pump, but didnít want to take it farther than that, not really their thing. So I kept an eye on the leak knowing it was possible my water pump was on itís way out.
When I started noticing the noise I chalked it up to pump failure, good thing I got under the hood to inspect and I was close to home. We had just gotten back from a weekend ski trip before noticing the noise, and I made it up to Loveland and back after the noise started, it got worse on that trip which prompted me to have a look.
Sabotage?? I donít know, itís possible, been in a few shops this last year, and never heard of these bolts just walking themselves out and I havenít had any work done that would entail removing that pulley or bolts.....
