    nope

    he's referring to the auxillary coolant pump mounted on the front of the gearbox - as mentioned in the post

    has the outlet on the pump snapped clean off?

    if so then a replacement can be had on ebay around the £40 mark - universal inline 12v pump can be used

    theres loads generally on ebay - 2nd hand that is - or check out a breakers yard as they were fitted to a few different vxls including omegas and the likes

    or could even be bridged together with the other pipe as a short term method

    anyway it can be repaired

    tbh i aint heard of any snap but thats not to say they have

    that link i posted above is a submit offer too so u might get it for a steal

    considering theres a used omega one on there for £35 delivered - id give the bosch one a punt and take it from there - least its brand new!

    failing that scrappies is ur only other option

    from the Vxl model line up they were fitted to

    Astra G, Zafira A, VX220 Turbo with Z20LET engine

    Omega with 2.0, 2.2, 2.5, 2.6, 3.0 & 3.2 engines referenced under Vxl part number 9120117

    should make searching the scrappies a little easier
