5.2. Removal and installation of hoses of system of cooling


Check a condition of hoses of system of cooling and in the presence of defects replace a hose as follows.

1. Merge cooling liquid from cooling system. If cooling liquid does not be replaced, it can be reused. For this purpose bring together her in the pure container.
2. An edge of a screw-driver weaken collars and move them on a hose. Being careful, remove a hose. If the hose sits very densely, having pulled, turn it on a branch pipe.
3. Keep in mind that radiator branch pipes very fragile therefore at removal of hoses do not make excessive effort. If the hose does not act in film from a branch pipe, cut off a hose, and the part of the hose which has remained on a branch pipe, cut on two half. Thus it is necessary to use a new hose.
4. At hose installation, previously put on it collars, then establish a hose into place.
5. For fastening of a hose it is desirable to use collars with the screw. If rigid and it it is difficult to establish a hose into place, moisten the hose end with soap water or soften it in hot water.
6. Check that the hose is correctly located, then fix the hose ends collars.
7. Fill in cooling liquid in cooling system.
8. Check tightness of system of cooling.
