As above. I have the ECS alloy housing and an o.e plastic crack pipe. No leaks etc. Fitting is a bit more fun. I was already replacing my radiator and inlet manifold, so doing the thermostat and crack pipe became an easy job. At the very least you will need to disconnect the hoses to the radiator and, having removed the grill, bumper, crash bar etc and pulled the rad plus it’s housing forward , you will at least have some access. If I were to do the job again, I would still disconnect the aircon pipes , rad fans connector and a few other bits of wiring and remove the complete front end . Access is then dreamy .
