When you fitted the pipe what position did you put the jubilee clip in only asking as I recently did mine and noticed when I had the bonnet up a day or two later that it had started to chafe the underside of the expansion bottle so had to turn it downwards a bit for all those that have fitted new pipes might be worth a look .save expense in the future especially if it was to were a hole in the bottle on a long journey that could result in lose of coolant and possible head gasket failure
Not scaremongering but something that you think you have fitted correctly (me included) could result in cost .try an post a pic of what it did to mine.
