Coolant Tank replacement - I did it my way!

Recommended Posts


If you smelled coolant in your trunk and found a puddle under the carpet in the trunk. You got your self a coolant tank replacement job. I looked at various tips and techniques to perform this task of replacing the coolant tank. First, buy the coolant tank from sunset imports porsche in oregon ( $203). THE JOB: To remove the tank, you need to first unscrew all the nuts off the tank. This is simple. To find access behind the wall, you can find a engine wire connected to the left side of the coolant tank. Push this connector inside the engine bay. Now get access to the engine bay by service mode convertible top. Flash some good lighting in the engine bay from the top. Now through the small hole on the left side of the coolant tank, slide the cable operated hose clamp ( patience, patience! dont get mad, get a drink of diet coke) position the clamp and press. Remove the two clamps this way at the closest end to the wall. Now slowly pull the coolant tank away. Now you still have one clamp which goes from the bottom of the coolant tank, you can pull the coolant tank and shove the hose clamp plier there. Lo behold, the tank is now free.

To replace put everything onto the coolant tank ( this is most important). On the back side of the plastic wall, slide two screw clamps so that they hold on to the hose. now slide everything through that hole slot , easy easy easy... take it slow. Support the tank with some carboard. NOW, place a stool near the rear right tire and lean over the trunk( place heavy cloth on the trunk) slide your right hand slowly and carefully. With the two forefingers find the hose and with the back of your palm support and pull the hose over the metal tube. Do this for both the hoses. To put the clamps, tie a screw driver with electrical tape on your left hand so it doesnt fall. Now lean over the trunk and if you look down you can see the clamps. Place your right hand on the screw clamp and tighten the screw with your left hand. Do this for both. Now ease your self out and tighten the coolant tank. Done! Dont get worried of all this process takes a total of 8 hours ( remember take it slow and easy). now pull in the engine electrical connector back. You are set. Dont forget to burp the coolant ( you can find this procedure everywhere). Again, take your time. Remember its okay to curse.
