Does anyone know where I can get hold of a new expansion tank?

 

Mine is spitting a very fine mist out of the seam when the engine is hot.

 

I've had a look on servicebox and I'm pretty sure the part I need is 130373 (I have ABS) but it's listed as NFP.

try the wanted section, you have a round white tank iirc.

 

I have seen a few aftermarket ones listed, not sure where but a google with the part number should find them.

If the car has ABS you'll have the square black type. Look on eBay for another one (used), for new old stock try Farmer. As a short to medium term fix until you find a new one you could try a bead of silicone sealant on it

It's the black square one. I've been keeping an eye on ebay for a while but nothings come up yet.

 

I don't drive it much and almost never in traffic so I might just try sealing it with silicone until I can find a new one. Baker BM used to sell aluminium ones but they have been listed on their site as 'The product is being redesigned and a new version will come on sale soon.' for ages.

The later tanks went back to being round with a ABS cut out and clear not black, Stick a wanted add up
