    Broken black water pipe on water pump

    I have a 1.2 corsa c, and the black plastic pipe that screws into the top of the water pump has broken off, and my local motor factors says this part is unavailable on its own, and does not come with a pattern water pump. They are telling me I need to buy a genuine vauxhall water pump at a cost of approx £90 to sort the problem, but my water pump is ok and I only need the connector pipe. Does anyone know a cheaper solution to the problem. Paul

    He said he tried the Motor Factors, they probably dont have a source for it as its main dealer only.

    Vauxhall do the part now, it's taken 18months for them to find it! They sold me initially the new replacement brass nipple (wrong 10mm thread) for £3. Vaux told me they don't do the 8mm one in brass or plastic.

    Correct 8mm one is Vaux part no 'GM# 55564351 (see photo of packet below). Price is around £9 but haggle for some discount.

    Packet.
