After all the trouble i've gone through the past month getting this gearbox up and running i had finally thought that it was all over and done with.

Now just to piss me off one of the rubber transmission cooler lines has sprung a HUGE leak and covered my engine bay in a shiny bright red finish :roll:

Could somebody please inform me of the dimensions of this hose so i can order a new one please? Thanks so much!

If I remember rightly, it is 3/8 Transmission hose you need. Use the correct type of hose.

Thanks a bunch for that.

I'm dreading having to remove/install it as it appears to disappear behind the bumper and dreading having to pull all this stuff off.

Is this a "remove a whole lot unrelated things like bumper and radiator" type of job? I sincerely hope not :shock:

I guess that would help huh?

EL Fairmont Auto i6

I just had a quick look and traced back where the hose actually goes. There is little tranny cooler in front of the aircon condensor but it's hidden behind a grey plastic air duct/shield? that inhibits me from accessing it. So it looks like the bumper may have to come off :(
