Howdy all... need a little help here in removing the heater hoses from
the rear firewall. I need to replace the heater core.
1995 Chevy Lumina APV 3.1 engine
Hoses on the firewall have the broad type spring clamps (not the wire
ones). The clamps are facing downward and tangled with each other.
I can't get at them from the front of the vehicle, clamp pliers
won't work, I have a cable type clamp remover, but again the
clearance and position of clamp arms makes this ineffective.
Tried a 12" long nose pliers but can't get at them that way either.
Jacked the car up... can't access them from underneath.
What am I missing here.... is there another type of removal
tool required for this type of situation??? Is there access from
inside the car ???
This is a damn stupid way of installing heater hoses....
Your suggestions are appreciated !!
Thanks in advance !!
