I'd be tempted to replace the whole unit.If it's leaking around the seal between it's self and the block,then I'm sure you could replace just the seal,but it's false economy really as if you have to remove the pump you'd might as well change it.It will potetially save a lot of bother in the future.If it's leaking around the internal seal on the pump spindle,then you'll have to replace the complete pump anyway as they aren't a serviceable item and are sealed.

Good luck and let us know how you get on.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
