I'd be surprised if it was different to the rover 400 / mgzs one.. But it's not guaranteed to be the same. Would be less of a risk if it were cheaper

Might make finding a second hand one easier though. 

 

One thing I notice is that this one is only for the rover 400 / 45 / Mg ZS and not the 200 /ZR. This makes me think that the ek one will be different from the mb, but again, that's just a hunch. 

 

Would anyone else know for sure?

Just thinking actually, it might work out cheaper for a repair by a local auto radiator company if you can find one.. These are some before and after pics of my heater bypass pipe (new one wasn't available).

Hi there, i made a bypass using the tubes from the car had to cut One just to put the valve functional.the pipe that comes from the side of the motor is connected to valve has normal and after the valve the tubes go directly to the back of the engine where the return from the heater Core was connected... The car functions has normal, There Will be no problems using this in the long Run?

I dont see that pipe you show for bypass on mine...

Thanks man allways helping...

I Will post photos of my repair i made for you to see what i mean.

Cheers
