Dropped coolant

Currently awaiting break down truck after 147 GTA dumped its coolant - managed to pull over swiftly so hopefully ok. What's usually the cause on these cars - perished hoses? Faulty clips? Burst rad? Thanks.

Turns out that the front lower metal coolant pipe is corroded. Could be a lot worse!

Very common. Autolusso do a stainless steel replacement. Recommended.

I've a decent s/h original if you want a cheapo repair option.... not knocking the stainless pipe though....I fitted one when changing the rad....plus their silicon pipes....

just realised mine is from a 156 GTA....pretty sure it's the same...
