Mito Coolant Hose/ Expansion Tank Leak

2479 9
Looking for some advice on my Alfa Mito 1.4 135

Its got a coolant leak between the expansion tank and coolant hose. I have replaced the clips with jubilee clips but the leak still continue I have read that the expansion tanks can be weak points on the Mito's but was wondering if anyone has had the same problem and what fixed it.

Thanks

As above, £18 on eBay new pattern part, the spout for the coolant return the highest smallest one gets hot and basically dissolved, going very brown and crispy. Replace ASAP otherwise you risk cooking your engine, search the forum I posted some photos about two years ago👍

The older model expansion tanks (with the brass inserts) are known for leaking, replace with the facelift version which has the top tube cast into the plastic mould. I did mine a few months ago & totally sorted the problem & easy enough to do at home.
