At the top of the water cooling pipe there is a rubber grommet that expands and is covering the end of the pipe. It will look like a bellybutton or a balloon knot!

I think you would be best to show this thread to your mechanic mate. It should give him plenty of tips to go looking for the problem.

If you watched/helped him it would be a good introduction into O/B maintenance.

I do know a bit about mechanics btw, it might not sound like it but I'm not totally clueless!
