Our test vehicle recently went in for service where we found that one of our coolant hoses had been subjected to extreme heat. This had bubbled the hose causing some coolant to leak out. Unfortunately for us, this was an AMG specific part and had to be ordered from Germany. It turns out that it was also on back-order, so it took 14 days to arrive. That means we lost a lot of valuable time with our test vehicle.
To stop this from happening in the future, we decided to wrap our new hose in Elite Series to ensure it would repel the excessive heat.
In this video, we talk about how to wrap complex parts (3D compound curves) and tight radii. It is important to remember that because of the fibreglass weave, the tape does not stretch. That means if you are not creating relief cuts you will run into lifting issues.
We hope this has been an informative video.
