That looks to have the same ends but the routing looks way different and may be difficult to fit.

Have you tried BL Auto's as they are usually breaking a C6.

A quick 'Google' brings up lots of repair options aka - Click Here - and splicing kits which you may need to join yours with the end from another pipe: - Click Here -

Looked closely at my pipe in comparison to the C5's above and the routing is the same, just hoping the length is Ok. The best part is that if push comes to shove I'll Alley solder the end I need to my existing pipe. Or get a straight coupling that Dave has suggested in his post. Oh and I've bought the pipe from Spain so will soon find out if it fits.

As for the Fuel line problem, I'll probably get a new 8mm I/d quick release elbow and attach a new high pressure pipe up to the tee piece. I don't think I've ever encountered a vehicle with such flimsy fuel fittings, metal oil cooler male outlets into plastic female.

Mind you though, this is not something you take off daily is it. Once the work is done I'll let you all know what was used and how the rebuild is going. Just goes to prove how important it is with these C6's to replace those two plastic/rubberised water tanks top and bottom ever 5 years.

Absolutely agree. Top one had been changed on my car last February before I bought it, but whilst changing the radiator which had leaked whilst on a holiday in France, the lower one was found to be broken as well, so they really should be done at the same time.

Found these whilst looking for something to repair a couple of pipes on my MGF. Might work for you also...

Yep, they would be very handy to get out of trouble with, shame that everything from them seems to be 'out of stock' on their web page. Will keep looking at them just in case, so thanks again for the Link.
