There are 2 elbows, check both. Also check the heater hoses. Clean up the area real good and then watch for leaking. Coolant can leak from one place and travel to another, so be sure to use your hand to check under areas.

It was the two elbows they had broken at each end on both 45 mins to fix a lot easier than the water pump thanks for the help took longer to clean up the coolant that leaked out
