Re: bottom hose plastic elbow

It is an Alfa part and it comes with the bottom hose.

If it is just leaking through the seal, clean it up and apply some silicon sealant before closing the joint.

Re: bottom hose plastic elbow

I had a leak here after a rad change and without touching the releasing part of the clip I pulled the elbow away from the rad a little which sealed it properly, it's worth trying that first. It's now about 18 months on and still watertight.

If you do need to change the elbow I think you can only get it with a replacement bottom hose from the stealer.
