Does anyone know how much a brand new Coolant Water Bottle for a 2013 1.4 SE Corsa would cost from a Vauxhall Main Dealer?

Also, I've found one for £22.95 at Vauxcentre which is described as a genuine Vauxhall part. (see below) Has anyone used Vauxcentre before, it is likely that the part is really a genuine Vauxhall product? I've tried to find one on eBay but ironically all the used ones look almost as discoloured as the one I currently have!

If you’re just replacing it because it’s discoloured then try a painted cover for it, it’ll work out cheaper than buying a new expansion bottle as if it leaks when the new ones fitted then that could be a blooming nuisance

Many thanks for the advice, do you know where I can buy a painted cover?

eBay would be as good a place to start as any, chrome finish will be readily available whereas painted won’t be as common, and if you do go down the painted route, get it from the same place as not everyone has the same gloss black if that makes sense, battery covers, ecu covers (fuel specific) expansion bottles, oil caps, dipsticks, even engine covers themselves, so it’s possible to have a totally colour co ordinated under bonnet area if that’s your bag!

Hester hydro dips, they do custom stuff so should be able to do any part you want doing, looks pretty good gear too.
