    I bought some new upper coolant hoses and can't find any information on how to change them. Bently is of little help and searching is the same. Any help will be greatly appreciated and, as always, TIA

    What sort of problem have you had?
    Loosen the hose clamps and work the hose off. The old hose can get stuck, sometimes you have to work a small flat screwdriver around the inside of the hose to get it unstuck from whatever it is that it is attached to.

    I think you will have to remove the intercooler to get to where the hose goes into the motor or take the front off the car. I cant remember. I will look later today.

    @Goldsmithy Sorry I forgot about looking. thanks @Sully. It looks like removing the intercooler would give you a little more room. Did you ever get it changed?
