Where do the Heater Hoses Go?

Recommended Posts

In my Esprit S1 restoration, I am about to put the engine back in.

But I can't find where the left hand heater hose goes in the engine compartment (when viewed from the back of the car)??

To be clear - two small alum pipes run from front to back thru the frame - a hose is connected to the left hand tube but I don't know where its' end is connected.

I've figured out the connection for the right hand tube/hose.

But my disassembly pictures don't show the left hand hose, the manual doesn't show it, can't find any reference to it on the forum.

Any help would be great - I want to put the engine back in.

Hi Bob

Do you have a parts manual?

If not, Bibs has made them available through TLF as a download to Full Members.

Clicky to Manuals

There is an exploded diagram at the start of the cooling section which should help. I'm not with my car so I can't go and look for you.

Hi Gavin:

I have carefully reviewed the diagrams in Parts Manual and Maintenance manual and find no reference to Heater Hoses.

So, I'm still at a loss. Help.

The heater hose goes to an aluminum elbow pipe that syncs up with one of the main coolant pipes. The elbow pipe has two branches that connect to the smaller heater hoses. You can clearly see it in the pic.

Hi Renn:

Thanks for the picture - that's exactly what I need.

Now I will try to find out who stocks them.

Any ideas?
