NEEDED

Post by tim leech » Tue Jan 16, 2007 11:48 am

I need a radiator house to repair a broken one on the Xantia, 3cm bore and about 20 cms long and I cant get one ANYWHERE!

Any suggestions? Noone stock radiator hoses any more as they all come preformed.

A search of 3cm hose on eBay gave these two for a Land Rover

Any good ?

If not it might be worth contacting Pirek at pirtek.co.uk who do replacement hoses for all sorts.

:shock: How much :?: :shock:


I`m sure smaller motor factors used to be able to supply these hoses cut to your length (ooh err missus!).
It`s only slightly possible but I MIGHT have a spare kicking about somewhere that would fit. I`ll have a look and get back to you.

Its for a xantia mate, and a early MK1 8v at that, you have to buy a hose kit which gives you all of the water hoses in one go. I got the part no of prnet myself.

The local scrappies dont have any petrol Xantias in and on thinks like hoses I would always buy new. CItroen do really price themselves out of the parket on parts, but jusging by the inefficiency and lack of interest by our locla dealers they dont care anyway!

I fitted what was called a Heater hose loom to a petrol Xantia a couple of years ago, basically both heater hoses and some thinner ones to the expansion bottle and radiator, price £109 the only problem was the plastic connector that goes through the bulkhead, which had lost all of its strength, it just crumbled to bits, the rubber was all fine, its bloody ridiculous, time was when you could replace hoses for a few pounds as a preventative measure.
