I own a 2009 Mini Cooper S with an n14 engine. I recently tried to replace the water pipe that connects to the water pump and the thermostat but I can’t seem to get the pipe to connected to the water pump. My previous issue was because the pipe and the gasket were starting to wear which lead to a major leak. I was wondering if anybody could give me a couple tips on installing it myself before I resort to taking it to a dealership. Thank you!
