i was cleaning all my breather pipes and what not, as the usuall yellow gunky **** that sometimes builds up was their. me been the smart ass i am, decided to do all the pipes coming off the throttle body.
too cut a long story short, i managed to snap the hose connector that screws into the water pump, connecting the water pump and Throttle body.
i have cleaned all the plastic thread out, and the metal thread of the water pump is unharmed, i have managed to bodge a small plastic pipe by threading cutting a thread onto the plastic, and teflon taping it for a water tight finish, but my mind isnt at rest, so want to get it sorted properly...
as far as i am aware, its a M8 thread with a hose connector, iam sure VX will say i need a new waterpump
but the pipe to the TB is purely to keep the TB warm under cold conditions right, so i should be ok right? so the only thing that could go wrong is, lose coolant?
I Tried my local auto spares shop, but they were closed
