Coolant heater matrix pipe replacement

Post by glasshopper »

Hi All.
I have got coolant pouring out of my vehicle from the front to back rubber hoses that go to the heater matrix the hoses were not strapped and have worn through which is super annoying. I have googled and checked the wiki but have not found a how to for replacing just these hoses.

Quick question - can these hoses be replaced without dropping the fuel tank or is that a necessary step in the process to replace these hoses? Just trying to work out how much of a job this is and if it is something I can do with just axel stands.

Tx.

I think they're one piece each, so should be fine to just thread through. Maybe use some string to pull them through aswell
