Not that weird of a failure, they are made of the same material that the radiator tanks and the 90 deg elbow is, plastic. 140 cars has a similar cluster behind the l/h head that'll do the same thing. The coolant goes acidic and eats at the interior of the plastic. Hence the recomendation of the Benz long life coolant, its more resistant to this.
