Top Heater matrix hose
« on: 12 February 2018, 17:20:23 »

Hi all

Got leak from the top quick connect heater matrix hose 2002 2.6

Got a new pipe from VX but it looks different from the existing pipe that is fitted at the moment the new one only has up to the green clip,  I assume  the locking collar at the back is reused when pipe refitted

To deatch the pipe am I right in saying I pull locking collar away from bulkhead towards front of engine (which closes up the existing gap) and then twist and pull everything off including locking colar? Or just th epip and connector

If so is the locking collar attached to the new pipe and then refitted or to the metal matrix pipe first

Thanks

To remove a connector:
       Press-in the latch and pull the locking ring back towards you
       Twist the whole connector assembly to un-stick the internal seals from the heater.
       Pull the connector and hose off the heater.


To replace a connector:
       Apply universal lubricant (spit) to the metal heater pipe.
       Push the connector onto the pipe and make sure it is fully home.
       Slide the locking ring away from you until it clicks into place. (if the locking ring wont move you probably havnt pushed the connector onto the heater pipe fully). :y
