wondering

Wondering if anybody else hase noticed coolant leaking in the "y" of the rear heater hoses on the back pasanger side of the motor? Looks like metal crimp bands holding hose on plastic y? wondering if just cut off crimps and add new y then band clamps, if anyone has had any luck with this methood. or just replace with new factor hoses?

That will be fine,done it myself just make sure hose is not swelled up or damaged.

Srew hose clamps are the best way to secure the hoses.

Metal is going to hold up better but the new type of plastic they are using now is very durable and should hold up just fine. If your factory one is not damaged I would put it back on with no worries.

If your handy with a torch I suppose you could make a Y out of copper, not sure where to find what truck has on it. Have you tried like a Napa store to see if they have anything? You may wind up at the dealer to get another one. But if your capable make your own,I would not use a straight tee, stick with the Y configuration for flow reasons. I'm guessing this is the Y below coolant tank?
