[DML] Re: Driver side water pump coolant hose

Im sure some people are fed up of me saying this but the 'current' 
hose being offered is a crap fit. On over a dozen cars i looked at in 
June all with the new hose, each one rubbed against the rear facia or 
had a 'kink' in it to some degree. The oem hose had a nice gradual 
curve off the water pump onto the rigid metal line but the 'new' one 
being offered is a series of angles and straights x ref'd from 
another car. The main problem with this hose being that the first 
straight length (coming off the 90 degree bend on the water pump) is 
too long so that the hose rubs against the rear facia. No mater how 
you adjust this up, down etc it still does not fit correctly.  Im 
still looking for a correct hose i can purchase / get in the UK......
