Coolant Pipe of Death (CPOD)

Before I actually got to "drive" my 20V VIS I just bought, the CPoD went on me.
Getting this part was not simple, most sites show it as not stocked.
I did get it from Twinz from ebay which was the handiest overall finally as ebay included UK-Eire import so the risk of it being sent back is lower.
After lots of looking around, there seem to be two fiat codes relevant:- 7756713 for the NA in the Coupe, Marea & Bravo. 46424005 might be more suitable for the 20VT. They both look the same in the images so maybe they are interchangeable.
Hopefully, this might help if it happens to you.
Attached is a how-to by somebody else I discovered on my journey (possibly off the FF).
Apparently, the 20VT is easier to do than the NA - just my luck. Having had a VT previously, that is a first.

The CHOD as itís known is available from Viper, Samco hoses and via fccuk.org . Just ensure that the replacement if silicon hose is a minimum 4 wire threads within the silicon. Some two wire CHOD hoses do not last that long. Also what the guide does not say,nis that if you have large hands, expect some scratches on your flesh.
