Unhappy 02 A4 Leaking Coolant-not Coolant Flange

Today my red "Coolant" light started flashing and soon after my car began to overheat! About a year ago, I replaced the coolant flange and up until then I have had relatively no problems.

When I filled the reservoir back up again, I turned the car on and the area under the reservoir I noticed some coolant on a hose and it looks like it was sprayed towards the driver side wheel and door area. Now I know for sure it isnt the coolant flange (or at least I hope not, again) and it definitely looked like it leaked directly under the reservoir but I didnt spill a single drop of coolant. Any ideas?

Also, I need to do a heater core flush, my heater hasnt been working for a while now. Does that have something to do with it?

Thanks!

Found out that it is the water pump. Going to be replacing the timing belt and water pump this week DIY. I've found two forums for doing this one's a B5 forum that is heavily detailed and the other is a B6 forum that looks a little easier but doesnt go into much direction. Just trying to find a nice B6 post about taking off the front bumper area, but not having to take out the radiator, ac condenser, the entire front of the car. Any ideas? Also, below are the DIYs for the this job, first is the B5 post then the B6. Thanks.
