    Default Solution FOUND: 405 mi16 bypass hose near pwr steer pump

    just a quick msg...

    As the bypass hose (behind top rear of rocker cover/behind pwr steer pump) on the 1.9 Mi16 is NLA. It was a bit of a PITA to source.

    After going to a few auto shops, i went to coventrys and the were able to match it up with a thermostat hose off a holden astra ld 1.6/1.8, Camira JD 1.8.

    Hose has written on it-

    Mackay Automotive Part no: CH1614

    Oem part no: 92033548


    The hose did needed to be cut and due to a slightly smaller inside diameter and shite location (~1mm+) i put the ends in a mug of hot water and used some petroleum jelly on the pipes and it slid on very nicely. Only 11 bucks too

    Hope this helps anyone in the same situation!!

    A better solution is to remove the bypass system altogether. The system is unnecessary in our climate. It's purpose is to bypass the heater matrix until the car warms up.

    It's a fairly easy job if you remove the thermostat housing:

    - gently heat the housing around steel tube with oxy. The steel tube will then pull out easily
    - tap existing hole 1/2" BSP
    - screw in a socket headed bung. I use Loctite 549 but what ever sealant takes your fancy.
    - replace the 3 hose plastic distribution block at rear of engine with a 2 hose aluminium block from an early 205.

    This eliminates two problematic hoses and various pipe work.

    I'm doing a few tomorrow and will post some pics.

    Nice timing - I was just about to order the two maybe three replacement hoses for this section of the engine.

    I had the power steering pump off on the weekend replacing the cam seal and what did I come across - This hose that should be about 3/4" in diameter blown out to about 1 1/4 and it's yet to spring a leak. I'll post a pic tommorow.

    Peter, do you use a tapered thread - 1/2 BSP?

    yes, just use a taper tap, so that it locks against the taper of the bung.

    Here's some pics. If you don't need a heater at all, eg race car, also remove the side tube and tap that hole as well.
