Loss of coolant
 
Hey guys,

my car lost all its coolant, i have found the part causing the problem, seems to just be a pipe. As you can see in the video below there is a hole which is spitting out coolant:

Does anyone know what the part number for that is? And is it easy to replace? I have never really played around in the engine before...

Thanks for the help in advance.

Its Kind of hard to see from the video, but I think you are missing the blue screw cover on that. I believe that is the expansion tank overflow port that is used to "burp" the system when you do a flush. Look at the top screw that is used to let the system flow through the lower drain plug (video). Have you checked realoem.com for the PN?

It is taken from the top of the radiator, not the bottom. It look to me like either

The expansion tank is cracked, or
The radiator is cracked.

There is no pipe there. Both can be replaced.
