    water leak

    hi guys,

    got a water leak coming from a housing on the right hand side of my engine (auq) Its just under the rocker cover, cant get in to take a pic, i thought it was the thermostat housing but its not.
    The actual housing is leaking as ive put a new oring in and you can see it slowly seeping through the housing seam..
    thanks for your help
    geoff.

    The plastic does go hard and brittle then you get cracks in them. I replaced them on the 20v engine I put in my mk2. I have had it where the o ring has not sealed so I put instant gasket in the channel on the plastic housing then pushed the o ring in and put a little bit on the face and that stopped it.

    Some people call it a coolant housing or a coolant flange.
