Having time on my hands due to Corona virus I decided to repair the leak on my wifes 2011 mini countryman (one). It looked to be coming from the much discussed thermostat housing so decided to replace it. On doing so I cracked the plastic pipe going to the water pump. This is amazingly inaccessible. Can anyone tell me if the pipe is secured anywhere? It seems fairly loose. Do I just try and pull it out? Have jacked and looked from underneath but can't see anything. A truly amazing design!!? Thanks for any advice.
