Mazda Bongo Rear Heater Hose Full Set 7 hoses – This set is for all seven rear heater hoses.
Heater hoses are responsible for transferring coolant away from the engine to the heater core, where the warm air can be blown into the compartment of your vehicle by engaging the adjacent fan. Heater fans blow through the heater core to heat the vehicle and cool the antifreeze inside of it. Allowing these worn hoses to stay on a car will usually result in them bursting open and allowing the coolant in the engine to leak out. Usually, the heater hoses will not be inspected during the routine maintenance of a car.
Signs you hoses may need replacing –
1. Cracked hoses
One of the first visible symptoms of an issue with the heater hoses is visibly dry, or cracked hoses. As the vehicle approaches high mileage the coolant hoses will eventually begin to wear, dry, and may eventually crack.
2. Coolant leaks
One of the first symptoms of a an issue with the vehicle’s heater hoses is coolant leaks. The heater hoses are designed to be resistant to coolant and heat, however over time they can eventually wear out.
3. Engine overheating
Another symptom of an issue with heater hoses is engine overheating. If the heater hoses leak enough, the coolant loss will compromise the effectiveness of the cooling system and cause the vehicle to overheat. Any issues that cause engine overheating should be addressed as soon as possible to avoid the potential of serious engine damage occurring.
