Header Tank Alternative Part??

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

I've been loosing a little water over the past few months out of my S4s, but could not find the source. Well today I found it.

The outlet pipe from the heater tank to the turbo was leaking. It turns out that the plastic header tank its self has degraded and is leaking between the plastic and the metal tube insert.

Have I got to buy this from Lotus, or is this part used somewhere else?

On SJ's site, the part is listed as an SJ prefix, does this mean its used somewhere else?

Thanks Guys

I'd better get walking round (Proton?) scrap yards, or do you think that the guy at Proton might just recognise the tank?





Any luck in finding it?
