Hello there,

Are you now replacing some hoses, and need to remove from the pump assembly?

All of the hoses are retained with a large plate a 2 bolts.

Best to remove the RH boot trim for better access.

So you want to replace a few lines into the pump assembly.

The top plate is held on with two allen key bolts.

All of the lines come off with this plate.

Each line has a clip to be removed to allow the fitting to come out of the plate.

Same in reverse.

DO NOT remove more than one line, in case you get lost.

Use the correct OPEL oil from Holden.

The clip at the bottom of the hose has been broken off from the previous owner
AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 9 months ago

The factory hoses swivel in the plate and retained from the back.

Without the individual clip, what is holding the hose in now?

Has some other bodgy home work been done here?

Perhaps the car should go to a Holden dealer where a tech like me would fix it correctly.

At one stage, hoses became hard to get, but we found a good hose repairer that could use the factory hose ends and make a new hose of much better quality.

The factory ends must be used.
