Hi All
I have a leaking heater hose right where it joins the heater pipe. I found the part, but while looking for it I also found a gasket seal that supposedly needs to be used on the hose heater connection.
I don't mind paying the price of £12.99 for the right thing but if anybody knows what other alternative I could use that would be greatly appreciated.

If you need a new hose:

Got the hose ordered already.
Just looking for an alternative to the compound that will work as well.
Cheaper alternative to be precise.

7-zap indicates this compound is for the heater inlet hose. Is that for the funky clip or the normal rubber side? Why not the outlet tube? Do other coolant hoses require some compound? I guess I'm not understanding why this is needed. Thanks.


FYI: linked page is Astra z18xer

Also glad you found the hose. There was a period that we couldn't find it new anywhere on the globe.

It's for the clip I suppose.
Not sure why this isn't needed for the return.
It is a bit of a weird one.
