V6 water pipe seal replacement
I have a water leak on my 156 V6. I is causing a visible stream of water to run down the side of the engine, behind the cam belt cover. I have had a good look and believe the leak to be the end seals on the pipe that runs along the centre of the V between the thermostat and the pump(?). This is vindicated by the fact the bottom of the V is very wet at the end where the water is running down, and also that the system never completely drains.
Has anyone ever tried replacing the seals on the ends of this pipe? Can you please provide me with a breakdown of how to do it. I'm assuming that you need to remove the thermostat housing but it isn't immediately evident how to do it.
