I recently replaced my expansion tank as it had a crack in it, and thought that would be the end of the coolant lights appearance on my dashboard.

How wrong I was!

After letting the car idle for 10 minutes I could see that there is a leak from I think is the thermostat housing and coolant is dripping down onto the fan belt(s). (What belts are they, never been sure?)

Are they held in with 2 or 4 bolts? It looks like 2, but the new ones look like they've got 4. Somebody please confirm!

Also, how much hassle is this to change over? It looks quite straight forward:

Remove the hose from the thermostat
Unclip the electrics
Undo the bolts.
