shi* now its come out have i messed things up ? should it just push back in and is it worth buying a new one? i had half the connector stuck in their so i used an old hook to screw
into the old connection and after a bit of wd40 and pulling very hard it came.

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Re: what is this !!
« on: 20:15, Sun 15 May 2011 »
alright cheers guys , when i took it off it had a cross on one end that moved up and down on a spring, if your sure i dont need it then is it better to take it out and use something that allows water flow?
confused as it has original hose clips on and the pipe hasnt been cut ?

Renault 5 GT Turbo / what is this !!
« on: 18:21, Sun 15 May 2011 »
quite keen to know what this is and how important it is. the pipe doesnt get hot , the arrow on it points toward carb. this coolant hose goes fron water pump to carb.
