    Default 205 Gti Radiator top hose

    Hi, I have a hose that has partially popped out of its sleeve on my 205 Gti.

    It's the one that runs from the top of the engine to the top of the radiator with a plastice sleeve that has 2 hoses running down to the aluminium box near the oil filter. I'm assuming this is for cooling the oil.

    As mentioned the hose running from the top of the engine has partially popped out of the sleeve and as a result coolant is spilling from it.

    Is there a replacement hose with the 4 connectors and plastic sleeve that I can buy to replace this?

    I've had a look online and cant seem to find that actual hose from Samco or Baker BM.

    Or is there a trick anyone can recommend to fix it?

    Thanks in advance,
    Delan

    This hose contains a heat exchanger for the oil cooler on air conditioned models.
    These are very expensive and if you don't want to use the oil cooler you can use a JB Camira top hose, cost around $12!
    The oil cooler conections can simply be unscrewed from the engine block and filter refitted directly.
    I do have a used top hose with intercooler if you are interested.
    The non air con cars use a normal air to oil cooler mounted behind the radiatorbut the second fan uses this space in the air con cars.

    Thanks Graham, how would I then refit a filter to the botton two outlets. Would it affect running at all?

    As I mentioned, remove those outlets complete with adaptor ring and scew the filter directly in their place.
    Only the 1.9 engines had these oil coolers and the 1.9 Citroens didn't have them so you should be OK.
    Don't forget we can't drive fast on public roads in this country, so it should be fine unless you want to enter the car in rallies or circuit racing.

    i replaced the hose with a non a/c 205 hose (wasn't aware at the time of the camira hose) but didn't remove the oil cooler since it's easier & less messy to replace the oil filter.
