In replacing the rubber water pipes, etc on my MK IV 1 1/2 litre the take off outlet on the side of the engine water manifold (for the pipe that goes through the bulkhead to the Air Conditioning unit under the dashboard) literally sheared off in my hand as I unscrewed the jubilee clip to get the old hose off. Does anyone have any experience of how this outlet is fitted to the manifold cover (I don’t want to damage anything before I know exactly what the set up actually was), and I cant see if this was a threaded outlet without doing some “digging out”.
The outlet connector before it broke off
It literally fell off in my hand !!
Any information or photo of a possible repair/solution would be much appreciated. Thanks
