    It will be just be called your coolant hose pipe. If you call vauxhall they will be able to give you a part number for it or you can just describe where it is and they can order it in for you. To get undone u need to merely unhook as it's, so get a flat head screw driver and push in flat and then it upwards as if ur turning in a screw. I would recommend getting an easier clip then that one. They do one where they tighten via a screwdriver. If you type I hose clip or jubilee clip on Google you will see what I mean.

    Okay, will try speaking with vauxhall, thanks

    yeah i was thinking the same to get the easier clips such as jubilee clips, but would it be okay to use them on those type of pipes, wouldn't the coolant leak through or damage the coolant pipe?

    For me it's not the type of club it's the tightness that if gives. You could always by the easier clips and do a quick test by seeing how tight the old one get on a piece old pipe and see if you can tighten the easier clip to the same tightness. But tbh u could also always try the new clips and tighten down. Run car and test for leaks which u wid do anyway . If it does leak then u have ur answer and of u put a pan underneath u can just reuse coolant or buy fresh. But I would worry top much as long as they ate jubilee clips made for engine hoses you should be fine

    But also if the old clips are not too bad to get off. I would take it off and then try test taking on and off via and old piece of garden hose of something of similar diameter and once u get it down then might as well go with what works. I have the more difficult clips on my grande punto everywhere but with the right tool they are pretty to get on and off so I would probably stick in that case.
