Customer Question
I'm replacing my coolant...

I'm replacing my coolant hoses. How do remove the surge tank to access the hose connected to the bottom of it?

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to walk you through that for your GMC. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

I forgot to say it's a 2009 Pontiac G5.
