I have a 2009 Subaru Forester that has recently blew its radiator hose. I have replaced the hose however, I noticed that the radiator connector has deteriorated as well. I have also found chunks of the deteriorated plastic at the bottom of the coolant loop (assuming it was from the connector in the image). I have already ordered a new radiator although I am wondering if this is a common issue or if this is a part that has been recalled at some point. Should I also be concerned with possible damage to the water pump?
