Water pump failed due to some type of blockage in the radiator.
OEM water cooler has a plastic impeller which invariably will break and shard in the housing. You must replace this with an aftermarket water pump with a metal impeller. While you're in there change your timing and serpentine belts, cause it's a pain taking all that out.

Replace valve cover gasket and intake manifold gasket with OEM gaskets from Volkswagen. Easy fix. Torque specs are crucial.
