Third radiator question


Recommended Posts

Installing the third radiator on a non aero '00 996, so far so good. But the driver side hose (the small hose to the new radiator) seems way too long. Did anyone have to cut this? Perhaps it's installed incorrectly. The pass side hose seems a little short too.

BTW is there an easy way top get the plastic rivets out, I had to tear up a couple of them trying to loosen up the fenderwell lining.

Loren help me out... :D

The plastic rivets should just pop out usually without damage. I bought some extras before I started but never used them.

I added a cooling diagram to my DIY page last week that hopefully illustrates the hose path a little better (I could not get a photo because there was not enough light to see it).

Much thanks to Loren on his DIY tips. I finally finished the install, what a *****. It was a hell of a job in my hot Houston garage. I ended up having to trim the driver side hose a little to get it to fit correctly. I was a little bummed about that, but there didn't seem to bve any other way, i was only about 3". did anyone else have to do this?? Did I screw it up? Seems to be working fine so far.
