I've just taken my Focus 2001 1.8LX to the garage after a coolant leak. They have diagnosed it as a leak into the thermostat housing and have said I'll need a new housing. They have quoted 86 from Ford, which seems about right, seen them for 72 but I just want it sorted. On top of this though, they have put 72 fitting on top, this seems a bit excessive.
How easy is it to fit yourself?
They are fitting it this afternoon, so a quick reply would be much appreciated.

I'm just glad it wasn't the head gasket :rolleyes:

Have something to contribute?

Thank you, I guess I've just to remember the formula of money - money - money = cars :-(
They've done it now anyway so 158 lighter I'll be this month :-(
