Default 3rd water pump failure!

Iíve now had my 3rd water pump fail. The first time was around 40k and it was electric failure. Second one failed less than 15K and the plastic case cracked. Now the current one is not even 2 years old so for me less than 10K is on it and itís leaking like a sieve. Could there be an underlying issue here or am I just the unluckiest E60 owner in the world??

wow - I have never heard of such a bad streak of failing pumps in a single car.

I can't think of any underlying issue that could be causing it.

Where are you getting your water pumps from? What brand coolant are you using?

All have been OEM, first replacement done by dealer, second one done by an indy shop. THey had a 2 year warranty on their work so they are replacing the pump for free.

I was told yesterday the third one failed where the plastic housing met the metal housing, same as the 2nd one. Such a poor design. This one only had 4-5K on it!
