Replaced the power brake booster. When raising subframe and everything on it back to original position, I snapped something where a hose running from my coolant reservoir goes into the side of my engine. The hose is only about 8-10" long, but I don't know what it was that it attached to. The plastic piece it attaches to in the engine is what broke, so I need to know WHAT i broke, and how to replace it. Thanks.

Hello,My name is XXXXX XXXXX X am a Volvo dealership technician. I am going to try to help you with your question. This goes into the timing cover, correct?
i believe so, yes. that's the passenger side of engine, correct? RIGHT next to the coolant reservoir.
Okay, this is a bleed pipe that goes into the thermostat housing, which is behind the timing cover. Unfortunately, it is not available separately and the whole thermostat housing must be replaced. It is located right behind the timing cover, but you'll also need to disconnect the ECT sensor. The wiring for this goes up to the top of the head and is held in place with a plastic shield between the two camshaft pulleys. The housing runs about $110 I believe and comes with an ECT sensor and thermostat
Alright. So no one seems to be able to even order one. What's my next option? Also... does the engine have to be pulled out or anything to be able to install that housing?
That is most likely going to be a dealer only item, I doubt there is an aftermarket one available. The part number I show is(NNN) NNN-NNNNand(NNN) NNN-NNNNis the gasket. This is with a parts catalog that isn't always 100% accurate, so double checking with the dealer is best.
The engine does not have to be pulled. Just remove the timing cover and you'll see the bolts holding the housing to the block. To get to the connector for the ECT, you'll have to remove the plastic pipes to/from the turbochargers and remove the upper timing cover.
