Guys... I have a horrible problem.

Tried to change my water pump today. I unscrewed the 4 bolts, got the 2 M6 screws in and started tightening them. The water pump was so stuck in there that part of the border/rim (i don't know what to call it) of the WP broke. I'm talking about the part with the holes for the 4 screws. Nothing "internal" broke. I managed to put everything back together and started the car. WP seems to work properly. Temp is regular. Anyway there is nothing else sealing the WP but the O-ring around it which didn;t move si there is really no reason for it to not work.

My question is: how the hell do I get the pump out anyway?
