156 2.0 ts sp2

leaky 156 ... with pictures! please help

Hi all

Im looking for some help, ive a 2000 156 2.0 ts sp2 which up till now has been fine, apart from the creaky suspension thing but on the way home tonight it suddenly wet itself.

Ive attached a picture of the pipe while still leaking, bottom left of the engine (as you look into the engine) behind the radiator - piddling out very fast.

Questions are...

What is it!

How hard to fix?

Any ideas how big a bill i am looking at!

Thanks all

shouldnt be too difficult to fix up, depending on how you want it done. if you just want it to stop leaking you can get some putty that will solidify over the pipe sealing it fairly reasonably (ie, the stuff that is used to seal holes in exhausts)

new pipe may be a better idea but i cant advise on this im afraid.

welcome to the club and can i just say nice detailed post, just how they should be! nice one!

That's the oil filter heat exchanger. I think they are around £150 new unless you can get it brazed ....
