Re: Broke down today...

The single use clips break apart /off using a screwdriver once you get that knack it's easy, remove the thermostat so it's easier to work on the pipe clips attached to it.

Re: Broke down today...

Got it all done in the end, some nugget had plugged the thermostats electrical clip on upside down!! No wonder it was such an effort to get it off...

Fingers crossed there is no more issues (hope the headgasket didn't blow)

Thanks for all your help everyone!
