if you trace the pipe first to see if it is the pressure pipe or the return pipe, if it is the pressure pipe you will need either a new pipe or if the pipe is a standard size such as 10mm or 8mm you can get a compression fitting from a plumbers merchant that will join it where it has burst, if it is the return then a piece of hose and two clips will cure it,

Sorry, it does have central locking but it's key operated and working perfectly. I got 4 keys with the car. 3 of them are black and seem normal and the 4th is a grey one which I assume is the master key. Sadly there is no fob to open the central locking. I don't think the LE model came with it.

It was indeed the return pipe and it was fixed with a piece of hose. Great job and working perfectly now...fingers crossed it stays that way!!
