Default I need an expansion tank for a Civic type R?

My Son has got a Honda civic type R 2003 reg. the expansion tank has developed a pin hole and needs replacing, does anyone know where in the Norfolk area (preferably near Gt. Yarmouth) and not a main Honda dealer that he can get one? He works away so it has to be soon, many thanks.

My mistake PatrickC we do have AutoZone here in the UK will contact them after the Christmas break.

Apart from trying to repair leak. Ebay may work for that part or breakers yards. Unlikely to locate such outside of main dealers.

You don't want to buy that piece from a salvage yard. I looked on Auto Zone website and found it new for $19.99. Now go to your local Auto Zone and order it. I am not sure I found the correct vehicle since the website does not list a type R. By the way, it is called a coolant recovery tank.
