part on engine help??

Post by dansutton » Sun 05 Jul, 2009 13:23

hi all

i've got a 97' z3 2.8 and at the front on the car under the radiator are two rubber pipes that then attach to a metal square shape pipe which has started to rust. Any ideas as to what the metal pipe is? And are they expensive to renew?

Thanks Danny.

Please do not ask questions in the knowledgebase, it is a forum where you show us stuff you have done.
Ciao,

do you actually like driving at all or are cars to you just a manifestation of some sort of pathological mother complex ?

sorry to put question in wrong place. Thought knowledge base would be the correct place.

2. You fill up every three days.
3. The size of your grin is directly proportional to the amount of boost you’re on.

PAS pipes suffer corrosion I decided to replace metal pipework and collant pipe on mine as replacing a weeping PAS high pressure hose..............Then again I am fussy and would rather spend on preventative work than await a disister when least welcomed.
