Re: [MBZ] And now for something completely different (not OT) - R/R W123 coolant hose

My 85 300D was doing the same thing. I discovered the bendy line from the drivers side block to the heater line had a crack in it. It would only have a notable leak when coolant was full. I kept filling it up every couple of days before I left for work and would not see any leaks. I finally

Careful too because some of the MB hoses are not the same diameter at both ends. Dimitri's '78 240D has a heater hose that I spent an hour carefully stretching into place because to get the small end right meant the big end was too small. This was back when Trent either sent me the wrong thing

The funny thing is, I discovered the leak b/c the car was over heating (usually it runs cool). I popped the hood and saw the short hose was oozing coolant, so I topped it up - took nearly a gallon of H2O through the filler tank. Now that the radiator coolant level is back to normal, the hose no

How do I get a part number for it? Or do I simply order generic (approx. 1 dia.) coolant hose and cut it to match? If it doesn't have any molded bends in it and Goodyear or Gates quality is good enough for you (5-10 year life vs maybe 10-20 for factory) you can just take it off, and have the
