Re: radiator top hose

If its the top rubber/silicone one that comes from the rad to the engine, its just a case of undoing the jubilee clips and removing the hose, very easy. Yes there will be water coming out, but as its the top hose, it will only be the amount that's in the hose. it wont empty the rad or engine off water.
