FORD COUGAR NOISE PROBLEM

2000 Ford Cougar

I recently had a metalic noise from my water pump on a ford cougar 2.5 v6 upon removal of the drive belt the bearing felt notchy and noisey, when I removed the pump a concave steel plate with a hole in the centre fell out is this part of the housing or should this be fixed?

Can you upload a picture for me to see? Was it mounted behind the water pump?
