In my 2012 RRs SC AB,72K I broke the SC hose/tube to water pump (LR012643) and have been told by at least 4 different vendors that LR012643 is impossible to get and has been superseded by LR049990 and LR045239.

LR045239 has an "empty hose fitting" and I haven't seen any hose that plugs into it. In my mind the only thing I can think is that they eliminated a coolant thermostat bypass for the SC which LR012643 had and replaced it with LR045239 which has a "blank" hose connector.

My question is does LR045239 have a sealed off empty hose connector that has been effectively rerouted to the thermostat via LR049990? Any other comments about these new parts? Can just buy a water pump connector tube?

Update - On second thought, I think I'm just going to put a barbed fitting on the water pump so I don't have to deal with this problem ever again.
