If water is coming out from behind the crank pulley it probably is the water pump leaking. The pump is just above this, behind the plastic belt cover. Remove the upper cover and you should be able to see it leak.

get yourself a 1/4 drive ratchet socket set, with various extensions and u-j's.

its quite tedious with limited access.

how to change the water pump on the rover 25 l series, as I was able to remove the pump cover but I do not know how to remove the pump, it seems to me that the pump has a way to remove it without having to force the pump output
I need your help xda because it's my day-to-day use car

If all the screws are removed it should come off. There are 6 retaining screws in total, with one behind the dipstick, iirc. It could be stuck on with sealant, so require some careful levering. See 3rd pic and text here for some further advice...
