the one that wraps around the engine. from back of water pump to under the inlet manifold.

exhaust manifold needs to be removed know that.
will the bbm need to be unbolted and moved to the side?

and can the pipe actually be lifted out without removing head?

reason is that its rusted, the breather hose running from the other heater pipe, coming from thermostat, is only just being sealed, more than half of the connection is no more.

i need to pull it back any way as its leaking ever so slightly from behind the water pump. so if its not that hard i thought i'd just replace it.

any help
thanks

i cut mine into 2 pieces, smoothed the ends and flared them, and bought a suitable piece of radiator hose and 2 hose clamps and put it back in without removing bbm.
it IS a prick to get to and to replace.
to remove it is ok, cause you can just bend or cut it.
but mark.tania is on the money if you don't wanna cut it.

oh and if you decide to cut it into 2 pieces, don't cut it anywhere near the exhaust manifold, you want it around the back of the head at a minimum.

instead of going to all the trouble of removing the manifolds to replace the pipe.just cut the pipe near the ends and replace it with some heater hose and use hose clamps to tighten the hose onto the pipe
