Please could you tell me if fan belt runs the waterpump, I know it runs the steering and brakes, just bought freelander and on the way home the fan belt snapped, temp gauge was a bit lower than before it snapped but water started to bubble out of radiator after 2 miles, any advice would be great
thanks in advance

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.
