Anybody have experience of Edelmann stuff? I can get their's next day over here in the UK, but the dealer wants 4 weeks for OEM or 10 - 15 days from US eBay sellers.

As I said above, I bought a GATES replacement hose. I did have to wrestle with it to get it installed. It looks easier than it is. However. It's not the threads that make the seal. Its the little black "O" ring at the bottom. If you twist or tweak that during the installation, its gonna leak. I buggered up mine with heavy dose of Vaseline to hold it in place during the operation. Mine has been on a couple of months now and its all good.

So I changed the hose, with a MOPAR version I managed to find in stock in the UK, not bloody cheap!

Anyway apart from the top fitting being an absolute ***** to get in without cross threading it, the bottom fitting is now weeping. The hose I got had this fitting supplied unattached, so I slid that onto the end of the hose, I can't see or think of doing it differently to how I did it. Any ideas guys?

Only thing I can think of...loosen nut, push tube in further, tighten nut.
I think I remember that when I did mine, there was a definite click to home position that indicated it reached where it was supposed to be...then I tightened the nut.

I changed the O-ring before installing it; if I had used the original one, surely it would leak.

Looking at the picture, the hose seems to be in the correct position (you should have heard a "click"), so now you can't remove the hose.
The only thing that you can do is to brake the nut (cutting it in half), paying attention to not damage the hose, install a new one (it is available also on Amazon, I bought one for spare before installing the original one)and re-insert the hose.

Yep, break it loose, check the o-ring, and try to push the hose further into the nut.
I had to use thread sealer to stop mine leaking.

Can you tell me what you used for a replacement O-ring? As luck would have it, I just found the one on my hose was damaged when I pulled it to change out the radiator this afternoon. My plan was to head for the hydraulic supply house in the morning.

Your new hose should have come with new o-rings.

It was a new hose when the previous owner had it replaceded 2yrs ago. You can see where they nicked the O-ring during the install. No sense ditching a nice hose for something that simple.

For grins, I called the dealer and asked what they would charge for the O-ring, if they had it. $8 (for one) and it would have to be ordered. Yea, that wasn't going to happen. So I dropped by the local hydraulic supply house who just gave me one (that fit perfectly) because they're both decent and couldn't be bothered to ring me up for 5 cents. And you wonder why folks don't like the dealers...

I too wondered how the new style would seal when I replaced mine do to the constant weeping out the crimp. I even think there was a paper with it saying not to question the new style nut.

I slipped the nut over the pipe and held the line tight in the hole while I tightened the nut. No less for me at all.
