    Eek water leak

    hi guys,
    i noticed my coolant level was low last week but have left it parked up on the drive to get christmas out of the way.
    i had a look today to see what the problem was and found a small crack in the bottom metal coolant hose between the radiator and engine. the water was comming out at a fair rate (as it would under pressure).

    whats strange is how this metal pipe with no corrosion has decided to crack ?

    i have had to bodge it for now with a jubilee clip and some rubber behind it but will have to replace the whole pipe asap.

    has anyone else had this problem ?
    my car is a 2.2 dti elite 52 plate

    any ideas on the part number or cost?
    many thanks

    Roy

    it turns out its a rare part to order from vauxhall but have ordered a new pipe.
    by the looks of the water (witch was a very muddy brown colour) it looks like the pipe has corroded from the inside out and with the cold it has just fractured.
    the pipe was £75 incidently (nice)
    if anyone is interested i will take some snaps of the pipe and fracture but wont be untill the new year now (jan 6th) as the part has to come staight from vx.
