I had that little weeping hole as well, but my squirter has stuff coming out now. Been in the shop a week now.... I just need the squirter/hoses area fixed and I will be happy again.
Thank goodness I have the extended warranty covering cooling and engine and electronics!

I'm hoping it's a loose hose, but I think its the squirter. Either way a lot of digging thru plastic to fix it.



In your first image it looks as though the dealer has fitted a jubilee clip that is too large judging by the amount of banding that's been wound through. That or its been way overtightened. Wrenching on these will lead to cracking of the plastic thermostat housing. The manual says 2Nm. In reality you only really need to nip them just enough to compress the hose itself. Personally I think had the thermostat housing design in terms of how it mounts to the engine (currently relies on a single o-ring compressed by three bolts) been improved and the housing itself been made of aluminium, the failures would have been lessened. This is obviously an aside to all the other well documented problems surrounding the water pump weep hole.

Thats what I reckon too, the thermostat housing should be ali/metal and the water pump and oil pump gears should be metal also.

Good information Top. I had problems the last trackdays this year with a fair amount of leaking. Each morning i was greeted by a little pool under the engine.
I located it to the lower hose clamp,generator side. It was dripping under the clamp. I did tighten it on the last day tracking and it seemed to stop.
Now i have loosen the hose and taken a look and it seems ok,no cracks on house/housing.
So should i just screw it back or replace the entire thing with a thermostat block off. I have seen they make them in aluminium and do i really need the thermostat? (Only track) Cant make up my mind..
