What make of thermostat

Hi need some advise, I need to change Euro carparts thermostat I fitted only lasted six months!!! On my 2008 1.4 mini one. What’s a good OEM part and should I replace pipe that goes to water pump as well? Also looking to replace cylinder head seals, what’s a good kit and sealant to buy? Thanks

What make of thermostat were you supplied by euros? Was it circoli as I believe they can be a bit hit and miss.

Other option is dealer but at around 120 it can make your eyes water

Unless the pipe is split or damage I use the old one. Good luck with the metal clip

Do you mean valve cover seals rather than cylinder head then a good brand is fai and they can be found on Ebay. unless leaking or split I have reused originals
.
You want a good quality rtv sealant just to put a dab in the corners on the vac pump end of the head

Leave it to set for about 10 mins then reassemble and torque bolts to 10 nm or risk damaging seals
