16. REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION OPERATION OF HOSES, ETC.

1. Before the removal and installation operation of hoses, etc.

2. Removal and installation operation of hoses, etc. during the inspection

  • Do not use a pointed hose remover (hose plucker) when using a general hose remover. It may damage the pipe surface or the hose.

Subaru Outback. Precaution

  1. Hose remover
  • Replace the hose with a new part if it rides over the stay or spool.

Subaru Outback. Precaution

  1. Hose rides over the stay

Subaru Outback. Precaution

  1. Hose rides over the spool
  • Check if the surface and the inner surface of the hose are damaged, cracked, bend, hardened, softened, swelled, peeled or deformed due to the adherence or the entry of the foreign matter by bending the hose. Replace with the new part if faulty.
  • Check carefully for assembling position.
  • Never use lubricants.
  • Insert the hose to the specified position (stopper or spool) securely.

Subaru Outback. Precaution

Subaru Outback. Precaution

  1. Push against the spool. (Insert the hose and prevent it from becoming wrinkled.)
  2. Tighten the hose outwards and apply force thoroughly.
  • Check if the position, direction and hose layout of the hose clamp are correct. (Check if the position, direction, length and the gap around are correct, or if it is different from the condition before the work)
  • After the installation, check that the hose is installed securely and there is no leakage. (Check if it is fixed securely with the clamp)
  • Check for deformation, rust, damage or foreign matters.
  • For hose clip, check if it works and has clamping force.
  • For hose clamp, check if it can tighten screw, not ovalized or the screw is not damaged.
  • Check if the pipe is not damaged, rusted, peeled (peeled plates included), covered with foreign matter, bent, compressed or cracked.
  • ATF cooler hose, engine oil cooler hose, power steering suction hose, power steering return hose, fuel hose (delivery/return)
