Its located in the waterpump housing behind the fan..........as for inlet tank....you mean the expansion tank , common problem they get brittle with age and normally spilt down the side, just replace it and refill system and all should be fine.

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
