Lightbulb Cutting off heater hoses on 300Tdi...

Hello

If you live in a very hot place like me, you might think about cutting
off heater hoses to avoid the risk of coolant leaking inside heater
matrix (yes it can happen and it won't be the first time ...).
What could be the best way to do that ? cut and plug ? cut and put
two bypass valves ? cut and put two u shape metal tubing ?
I don't know if someone has done that before, any suggestions will
be welcome ...

ron is right... but I like your idea if a valves that cold bypass the heter core. I see your point in the heat... no matter how tight you adjust your heater flaps it always seems to leak some heat. I think I have about 8 monts to worry about that now though.

post soem pics if you do a valve bypass I'm curious.

he means you can take the hose off the heater end (either one) and put it in where the other hose comes out of the block.
All that is happening with the heater is coolant is circulated through the heater core and back to the engine... so if you just take one hose off the heater, take the other off the engine side and plug the first said hose going from the engine back to the engine it will just take the heater out of the loop.... I think I made that way more complicated than needed.
