coolant bottle replacement help


Recommended Posts

hey i just replaced my pump then noticed leaking near my rear wheel turned out coolant was puddled in the trunk. I am having trouble getting to the clamps on the 4 hoses on the engine side of the bottle i can just pull it out about 3/4 of an inch and can see some of the engine side clamps from the trunk. Any advise getting it to pull out more or accessing the bottom right hose that goes to the white part of the bottle.

Ive got the cable clamp plyer thanks Peter

The optimum method to attack those clamps is matter of personal preference; some do it from above, others from underneath.  You can always pop out the adjoining bulkhead plug (with the large bundle of wires) to get access as well, or unbolt the tank and pull it into the trunk slightly to get at the clamps:

Make sure the screw clamps you use are a good grade of stainless steel. The last thing you need is one of these corroding and breaking while driving.

 

 

Good point, we use ABA clamps, stainless steel bands with rounded edges so they never cut into hoses.  Amazon and others carry them:

I'm I better off with the original spring steel clamps?

 

I'm not a fan of the spring steel clamps, which is why we always use the ABA clamps.  Check with your local parts stores, while them may not carry ABA, them may have a selection of stainless worm drive clamps at reasonable prices.

I disconnected the oil tube in two places but could reach in to put it back i had trouble with the final hose to the bottom white part of the tank getting it home but used a screw clamp with a universal and extension to tighten it hopefully no future leaks.
