Just had a new water pump fitted to my 01 1.8 tddi, now after paying £110 for that, I've been told the top hose to injector pump has two holes in it which need sorting asap. been quoted 20-30 quid for hose which apparently is main dealer only, then another 60+ quid for fitting. question is, is this a easy/hard job to do myself or a real swine to do and best left to garage. Thanks for any help

Just took this pic, red arrows show leaking hose with clips on. It's really rotted at left end.

To be honest, right now just the hose size would be a great help if anyone knows it, interior/outer diameter just so I can get the right one for the job.

Okay, all sorted. Turns out it was the big water hose to the thermostat that was leaking, clever mechanic
hose from Ford £10, removed and replaced myself, with lots of cuts and swearing, in only 4 hours
