It is indeed just a push fit with a rubber o-ring. Pulled it hard and it came out!
was there a leak from this pipe?
I have fusion 1.4tdci with a coolant leak somewhere around the thermostat housing - the pipes coming from the housing are wet and it runs down onto the exhaust
Not sure if the leak is the thermo housing or one of these plastic pipes
There are 2 of these pipes at the back of the engine - one from housing to water pump I think and the other is the bypass hose?
I am thinking of putting on a new thermostat housing to cure the leak hopefully. Do the plastic pipes need new seals or rings fitted?
