thermostat housing leak

Hi guys
My 2007 mini Cooper s has been leaking coolant. I out in some k seal to stop the leak but it didn't work. The engine started smoking a little so uncalled the AA out to see it. He said the thermostat housing has leaked and don't drive it as it can cause more damage! He saidbibmay have already caused damage!

How much will it cost mentobhet a new housing?

Thanks
Nikki

I had the exact same problem a couple of months back, I bought a new thermostat housing from GSF for £70.
Easy to replace but time consuming with removing all the hoses. When it came to it, it was actually my temperature sensor o-ring that had failed which is attached to the housing, but I was more than happy to replace the whole part. Unfortunately your unable to buy the gasket for the housing as this is where it would be leaking from.
