Default Re: Thermostat Extension pipe / coolant pipe

Yes, I broke the bolt hole tab off of mine and had to replace it. The girl at the dealership working the parts counter happens to be a wrencher and said they break them all the time in the shop.

Also, I took this part to a local welder thinking it was aluminum. He informed me it is made of ZINC! Is this thing supposed to serve as a sacrificial anode? Be better just to drop one into the overflow tank!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
