Replacement radiator hose.

I noticed that my hose is bulging out and I want to replace it. Its the original hose so i guess its time.

I found these hoses online. Do these look like the right ones? Or is there a better place to order hoses from? Thanks in advance.

Given the modest costs of genuine hoses compared to engine work, Roversnorth is a sensible place to purchase the genuine parts. $45 v. $20 may seem like saving money for aftermarket, but I buy genuine.

I would call RN to confirm. I would also change all the hoses and the plastic fill plugs will brass plugs.
I'm amazed they lasted 22 years...

Good call. Called them. That was the one. I also ordered a set of plugs and orings. Thanks

Normally, I'd agree with the Genuine sentiment. However, my Genuine lower radiator hose that was less than a year old (less than 3,000 miles) sprung a leak recently. I ordered 2 - All-Makes for less than the price of a Genuine and I have a spare now.

I've also gone through 2 Genuine fuel pumps in the past year, but that's another topic...

Glad you got it sorted! I have a genuine top hose on right now that has turned pretty hard. I previously had an aftermarket that lasted longer. I just picked up a replacement top when I was at Rimmer Brothers in England for a whopping $7.50 (aftermarket). We will see how it goes... I believe in genuine rubber fittings for suspension, but I am not sure for hoses. My bottom hose doesn't have an aftermarket and it is stupid money for a hose (ESR4223, over $120). If anyone knows of a good place to get that, let me know!

Has any one fitted silicon hoses? Was thinking of getting the bottom hose for the 2hundy.

I dont think so, and have never happened upon them. Maybe someone should offer those for the NAS...

Never seen silicone hoses for D90, but I'd definitely consider them if I found them!
