By the way, I found this the other day when looking under the hood. It was just laying there as if the mechanic left it there for me to see...

This must have been the piece that broke:

Yep, that's the retaining clip end of one of those two small hoses, the one that sits underneath the other and the one where below I commented that you squeeze the two tangs together to remove it. The clip on the end of the other small hose looks very different.

Oh boy, I wonder where the plastic bits that made up the nipple ended up?

Hopefully they fell off after the mechanic removed that piece and they didn't fall into the cooling system. That's a big problem with the previous generation of the Range Rovers. Those pieces of plastic break off and get clogged in the heater core and then you lose heat on the driver's side of the car.
