Thumbs up 2015 F Type

New member, thanks for having me. Thought i would pass this info. on in the event that it would help someone else. While driving my 15 F Type last week it started over heating and i noticed steam coming from under the hood, fortunately i was close enough to home to get it into the garage. No visible leak at first but it was low on coolant. I removed the engine shroud and as i was checking the hoses etc. i found the problem, it appears the "overflow" line from the reservoir to the front of the engine was as "BRITTLE AS HARD PLASTIC OR GLASS", My assumption is that the hoses are being "smothered" beneath the shroud and the heat is making the hoses very brittle to where they will snap at one point and strand you. I purchased the part for $61 dollars and replaced it in 3 minutes. "CHECK YOUR LINES" . Thanks and good luck, Gary
