    Default 505 GTI coolant hoses

    Just replaced the manifold hose after it split at one of the clamps this morning. Soggy out piece of @#$%. Used a piece of 12mm joined to a piece of 10mm as of course no original parts available.

    Since this is the 3rd hose to have blown on this car (albeit the first 2 failed under the extra pressure of a blocked radiator) I think it might be about time to replace all the remaining hoses as I was recommended to do by a poster on a previous thread.

    Any ideas as to whether I will need genuine parts for any of this and if so where the parts might be found? Or tips on hard ones to change or source?

    Cheers,
    Goonengerry 505

    Try EAI or EBay UK. Sometimes you might stike it lucky with Peugeot, They can acess stuff from all over the world now.

    With heater hoses it may be you'll have to do some cut and shut as I bet they aren't available any more too.

    Thanks Gerry - EAI look a handy tip.
    The heater hoses look like being the fiddly ones, but at least it looks like they're the same width each end!

    Here is where you can download the Mackay master auto hose catalogue.

    They show the full range of hoses and all the dimensions and diameters.

    I find it far easier to measure the old the hose and look for something similar in the catalogue.

    I have found Super Cheap Auto to be most useful. They have a large range of radiator hoses on display so you can take your old hose down to compare, and find something that will match.
    I have found many hoses to work for old Fiats.

    Thanks Barney - only trouble is she is our only daily driver at the moment - I guess I could pull them off in the carpark!!

    My manifold hose now goes right around the outside of the fuel injection unit instead of sneaking through the injectors - a bit less tidy but it works!
