    That's hose pipe pressure that, slice the old pipe off, bit of heater hose and a couple of jubilee clips and job jobbed.

    Sorry got confused running on very little sleep!

    Sorry if ive been a little short, could only reply when stopped in traffic on my way home.

    They tried tape and sealent lasted 10 mins and ****ed out again. This time though at a services not the side of the road which is a bonus.

    They are going to try and reseal it again.

    Trouble is the now split (was a 2mm hole before) is right where the crimp is for the union making bodge repairs a tad difficult.

    If their next repair fails I think they will be staying there until tomorrow when everything will be open.

    I asked on here in the small hope someone would have the part, trailer or able to get the part coming back from Kelmarsh!

    So for now id say this is dealt with. Though if anyone does have that hose or for any reason going from Crawley to the Midlands tomorrow let me know!!


    Thank you for all the help and effort :)

    Fingers crossed they get it working, giving it a good clean with brake cleaner before hand may help the tape stick.

    Is for problems like this I have personal RAC cover. Can save a headache or two.

    Cheers

    Darn, unlucky. They are normally all over you like a cheap suit. Every year I have to call the RAC and cancel just to get the price down.

    Cheers

    Cut the crimp off( I've done it with wire cutters on the side of the road) , cut off the damaged bit and reattach with a hose clip if there is enough slack?
