That exact hose broke on my STi V2 while we were picking it up in Vancouver. Happened 10 at night, so being resourceful, CD26 picked up a turkey baster from Save-On, and cut it with an xacto knife. Brake Cleaner on the busted reservoir, and dry time, Baster cut to the proper size (a little larger than the hose) for the hose end, and inserted. The narrowing end was cut to size for the reservoir, and jb welded. We made it back no problems from Vancouver like this.

I then replaced with a newer one from Subaru, that took a couple weeks to get here from the states.

Just to be clear Hose > baster-tapering end > reservoir where> represents the wide side on the left, and narrow side on the right.

Good luck!

Thanks! If I can't pick up a reservoir this afternoon this is what I'll do.

What reservoir did you pick up? I want to avoid this every happening again so the JDM reservoir is out of the question (unless found for cheap)

haha dude thats the EXACT same place mine broke. Got a cheap replacement from koalorka, aftermarkets are like $200+ when I looked.

My temporary fix, which didn't leak a drop, was plugging that hole with something, using a hoseclamp right around that whole protruded bung to block it off, and routing the line from the turbo into a Tee with the lines going to the radiator.
