    Unhappy Need Help Changing Heater Core Hose..

    Hey I had a question regarding the heater core hoses... I managed to take it off (taking more time then wanted) but I was wondering what was the quickest way to put them (it) back on... There is a wire that runs from the computer to down the side and the hoses were behind them.. how do I get them back behind there... I already removed the air tube and the EGR... also had to lift the ac compressor up to get the hoses out...Any help would be great. Tried a search and no luck on a write up. Thank guys appreciate the help

    If you remove the coil pack on that side you'll have enough room to get back there.

    Do you think its worth the trouble of taking the coil pack off? One site said you have the be really careful pulling them off, but if it will speed up the time of the install I am up for it. Thanks.. any help on the wire? Can I put the hoses over the wire or do I have to get them behind the wire to prevent melting the wire? Is there a sensor under the car that I can unplug to get the wire out of my way... havent put the car on jacks yet..

    The wire should sit between the hoses and the air box for the heater. Try it without removing the coil packs, I used a good set of needle nose pliers and was able to get the clamps back in place that way.
