Vauxhall Astra water hose failure
2004 Vauxhall Astra Problem
|Car||Vauxhall Astra 1.4 club|
hose connection to top of water pump failed whilst driving causing loss of coolant and subsequent damage to cylinder head.
This apparently is due to a bad design fault using a plastic fitting to connect hose to water pump-I believe that replacements are now being supplied with metal fixings requiring the pump casing to drilled and tapped
