Detachment and replacement of hoses of system of cooling

Do not disconnect any hoses of an okhladitelny path before complete cooling of the engine - see. Systems of cooling, heating, subsection "Precautionary measure".


1. If during performance of the checks listed in appropriate section of Head Routine maintenance, defects of hoses of system of cooling are revealed, they should be replaced.
2. Empty cooling system (address to Head Routine maintenance). If the cooling liquid filled in system is rather fresh, it is subject to a reuse and should be merged in pure container.
3. The order of a detachment of hoses depends on type of shlangovy connection (see below).

Hoses with shtutserny sockets of usual type


1. On unions and branch pipes of usual type hoses fasten by means of collars. Thus can be used both standard collars with a worm drive, and disposable collars of braided type. The last at connection of a hose are subject to replacement by more practical standard.

2. By means of a screw-driver weaken a collar and shift it along a hose up, having completely released the union / a reception branch pipe. Accurately remove a hose from the union. New hoses usually act in film without special problems while the old can appear "become attached".

3. A hose not giving in to office it is necessary to try to release, повращав it on the union, then it is possible to hook accurately a hose cut a blunt tool, without making thus excessive effort, - remember that inlet and final branch pipes of a radiator are rather fragile elements. As a last resort, strongly "become attached" hose can be cut off from the union by a knife: despite connected about in such a way certain material inputs, nevertheless will cheaper replace a hose, than to get a new radiator.
4. At installation of a new hose at first put on it fixing collars, after it pull a hose on unions/branch pipes of the corresponding components of an okhladitelny path. If initially for fastening of hoses collars of braided type were used, they should be cut off and at installation to replace more reliable screw or worm. For simplification of landing of rigid hoses on unions it is necessary to moisten slightly the ends of the last with soap water, or to warm up in warm water the hose ends - do not use as greasing any oils.
5. Pull a hose the ends on unions and check correctness of its laying in an impellent compartment. Place collars on the sites of a hose planted on unions, having got them for a face razvaltsovka. Strongly tighten collars.
6. Fill cooling system (address to Head Routine maintenance).
7. Start the engine, then attentively check system on existence of signs of leakages of cooling liquid.

Brought to the heater heat exchanger hoses

New sealing rings be required.



1. Both hoses of a heater are connected to the heat exchanger of the last by means of one socket. For ensuring access to the socket on some models can it is required to uncover a camshaft (see. Head engine Repair).

2. At the corresponding complete set remove a metal clip from the top party of the socket.

3. Release a plastic clamp, having wrung out it to the left part of the socket.

4. Separate the socket from the heater heat exchanger. Remove sealing rings, - at assembly they are subject to replacement without fail.

5. Alternatively, hoses of a heater can be equipped with the socket with a metal spring clamp (it is shown by an arrow)



1. Installation is made upside-down. Do not forget to replace sealing rings.
2. Fill cooling system (address to Head Routine maintenance).
3. Start the engine, then attentively check system on existence of signs of leakages of cooling liquid.
