    need to replace the top hose, as you can see where it has been rubbing and caused a leak, I literarily have no coolant in reservoir and need to sort asap

    does anyone know the exact name of this hose/pipe and model code/no?

    thanks for looking at this thread

    You might get away with cutting it where the hole is and just putting it on with the jubilee clip if it will stretch but it looks by the bends where it connects you hopefully will had enough left to get it on.

    If not just measure the diameter of the hose and buy it off eBay.

    Same thing happened with my old golf and luckily I was able to cut it and re attach.

    Clean the pipe up and have a look at it. There'll be a part number printed on it somewhere.
