Coolant Hose Replacement (archive)

Hi,

A question for those who have gone through the pain of replacing hoses on a 535...is there a trick to threading the two long hoses that run under the intake manifold?

They are secured by a pair of double-loop clips which are a bear to get at. Is there a way to remove these, pre-thread the hoses and reinstall the clips?

Also, if one is not replacing the fan clutch, can the pulley be taken off complete with fan and clutch as one unit?

Any tips on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Adnan
