    That looks like the right clip, they use the same one across many many cars.For some reason they rot it's very common for them to break when removing. Check it looks good before removing the old one. You won't need to drain the system, Just remove the clip and replace.

    Excellent, thanks. I noticed it was like that when I was doing the thermostat, so it's only just had fresh coolant, hence not wanting to drain it.

    Thanks again!
