Coolant pipes. Are they all rubber hoses or are some of them hard plas

Recommended Posts

1st picture. Taking using iphone from behind intake (without taking intake out.)

2nd picture. Taking from side of intake (driver side)

I was looking at this just now and saw that I still have plastic tubes. But when I touch the tube, it feels like it's ABS plastic and not rubber hose. Are the 3 hoses rubber hose or hard plastic? I was able to touch hose #3 on the picture without taking the intake out.

How can I convince the dealer to replace this under CPO? My CPO expires next month.

Not sure if you're looking at your coolant pipes...

And unless they are leaking or malfunctioning in some way your CPO cannot be used to drive a replacement. If so, let us know -- there will be a line in front of your dealer!

Yup those a the coolant pipes. There is a thread on Rennlist how to view the pipes by using a mirror and flash light. I just took it another step further. From the picture below, you can see the 3 hoses. My picture of the 3 hoses were taken directly behind the intake (very close to the firewall).

**** porsche and theirr **** plastic hoses, got a 04 turbo with 75k, 2 days after I buy it the hoses burst on mine, had it replaced, (at this point the car was getting fixed more than I owned it) the antifreeze apparently leaked on the bell housing of the tranny and ate through a gasket or a seal. Needed to replace a $75 seal 10 hours of labor more or lesss. FML

Sorry about the rant, just had to get something off my chest.

In my previous thread someone said, we are not porsche owners, we are porsche caretakers. Time to get a lexus and live headache free.

Once again sorry bout the rant, Feel free to flame I put my suit on.
