De Mort,

What do you replace with - like for like or a jubilee style clip?

Ian


I prefer to use the same clips .. after all that one that failed is going to be 15 years old ..

Im afraid though a lot of these have been superseded to jubilee clips by Porsche these days ..

Theres nothing wrong with that but they do tend to eat into the pipe a bit if really tightened up ... they dont last as long either .

The coolant tank is much bigger than you think - have a look at MCs recent photo. You only see a small part of the tank when you are looking in the engine bay!

I think - from memory - that to top up the tank from the low level to max level is about 2 liters, so if it dropped half a liter, you mightn’t notice it. Particularly in the area around the bottle seam/lip.


For the large tank it is around 0.5l from min to max. 3.75l total tank capacity. 2l loss takes it well below minium but still plenty in the tank.

1/2 a litre probably sounds about right. All fixed now either way.

I’ve got my front springs fitted and broke the lock nut at the rear so I’m waiting on a tool to remove them. One over those sorted I’ll move onto the next job.
