You kidding me? Tell them to shove it, take the car back. Then buy the parts yourself, and do all your own work. I know for a fact the t-stat housing is easy to change. Contact Steve @ Tousley for your own parts.

Seriously, Al just bout the line, and we installed it with motor in the car, it wasn't easy, but not hard at all.

Do work yourself!!!

Why not it's only 4 bolts that hold the pump, disconnect the belt(replace it while it's off), one fitting under the pump, two clamps holding the line and one bolt on the bracket that holds the fitting at the rack.

If you do the pump while the coolant is drained to do the T-housing you can pull the lower radiator hose for more room to get at the fitting and pump bolts.
