Coolant leak

Post by Alan_Hepburn »



I've got a small coolant leak on the left side if the engine and I suspect it's coming from the radiator hoses. I'd like to attempt to fix this, but I need to know what has to be removed, in what order, to get in to the radiators. There doesn't seem to be a "how-to" dealing with this issue but maybe someone here can point me to an appropriate tutorial?

Thanks!

The, "how to change your timing belts" advice is very good. In order to change the timing belts easily, it is best to remove a couple of coolant hoses, so you can use this section to show you what plastic needs to be removed to access the hoses and how to do it.

Hope this is of help to you. By the way, it is quite easy to do, you don't need any specialist tools.
