    I'm surprised that I'm the only one with this problem. The PO had replaced one but it also cracked by the time I bought it. The fix seems to have worked. It is much more rigid and flexible without...

    Mine has a plastic "hook" that snags the rubber "tube" at the bottom. If it busted off then I'm sure something can be cobbled together to do a workable fix.

    Hi, Paul.
    That is one of my fears with the Dexcool. I have a habit of putting things off. With Dex that's dangerous. It seems that if it gets old it gets acidic. As for changing it I guess that it's...

    Hello, Lee.
    I agree that if you get 10 people you'll get 15 opinions. That is what I was asking for first hand experience. I talked to a friend today who runs Dex in his 88 VW Vanagon. Older...

    Thanks, Paul.
    It is probably an unlikely event but if it happens I don't think there is a Beemer shop in Toadstool ; ) I will likely drive into town and try to locate it.

    98 Lee you've got what I've got.

    I girded my loins and betook me of the garage. I fondled around under the tank corner of the side cover and found what felt like a grommet. So then I pulled out...

    It has the pin "C". So. I'll go in later and gently, yet forcefully pull it out toward me. Hopefully you won't hear any gnashing of teeth from here ; )
