It most certainly does run the water pump. One of the main uses for the drive belt!

On the v6 Freelander, the fan, or accessory drive belt does not run the water pump. The water pump is ran off of the timing belt.

Easy mistake! We need a better more specific form.

But you are correct with the pump drive. I was wrong on my part.
