Replacement coolant hoses

Recommended Posts

Hey Folks,

 

Does anyone know if you can still source the OEM rubber coolant hoses?

 

Thanks

Honda should still stock these mate, or you could upgrade to an aftermarket silicon set.

Unfortunately not Dave. Looking on Lings.com shows that they are unavailable. I also checked my local dealer who also cannot source them anymore. I have heard that the silicon ones do not provide a good seal like the rubber ones.

I think that with silicon you're relying on the jubilee clip (or similar) to do all the work, whereas with rubber over time it starts to weld itself to the metal, so even if there's a problem with the seal from the clip, the fact that the rubber has joined forces with the metal will save the day. 

That said, there's plenty of people who've been running silicon hoses without any issues. I've got silicon ones on (for about 9 months I think) and so far so good. 8-)

Jeese, that's worrying. If they've stopped producing/selling what is essentially just a service item which the oem hoses for our Civics are, what else will they be discontinuing? 

 

Try here mate: https://www.buycarparts.co.uk/honda/civic-vi-fastback-ma-mb/7818/10200/radiator-hoses 

Does state sold out but new shipment on the way. Might be worth a try?

Thanks Dave. I have given my email so I get updated if and when they get the shipment.

 

As for the silicone hoses can you guys then reccomend some? I don't need the whole kit just top and bottom hoses and would prefer not to have to modify them to fit.

also don't go for jubilee clips for coolant hoses! you need T-bolt clamps, they provide a proper clap around the hose
