Hi, I have managed to destroy my thermostat housing bleed screw, anyone know where I can get a new one.
The crosshead on the screw snapped off in situ, managed to get the remains out of the housing by sharpening a welding rod down to a chisel shape, gently tapping with a hammer to form a trench across the remains of the screw and unscrew it successfully. If this happens to you it is easy to achieve!

This is the only one I could find.
I have managed to get one from Eastern BMW, Edinburgh, they have to order it in and it should be there this afternoon, they will post it out to me this afternoon, free postage! Cost £5.70.
