Features & Product Details

Your factory molded upper radiator hose can endure extreme pressures, and extreme temperatures which will cause the hose to become soft over time. Eventually the factory hose could give in, and burst.  Gates who are known for making exceptional quality OEM maintenance products have made an OEM replacement radiator hose that you can count on. 

These have been engineered to resist electrochemical degradation, which is the leading cause of hose failure. They have also been pre-shaped to fit and to ensure for a perfect fitment. 

The Gates hoses feature aramid, or rayon knit reinforcement which is resistant to heat, ozone, and chemical coolants. And it has a temperature range from -40 degrees C, to +100 degrees C. 

The upper radiator hose may need to be trimmed so it does not hit the alternator pulley.

Very nice replacement hose. Feels better than the stock hose. I would definitely recommend this product, especially if you are like me and didn't want to pay $100+ for the Mishimoto hose.

Pretty straight forward here - fits just like it should, no trimming was needed on mine. Great piece to do if you haven't done them already.

Can't go wrong. I put this on an 06 STI when upgrading to a Koyo rad. No trimming needed.

  • Q: Saab 9-2X fitment?  Suprgenius1 year ago

    Your site indicates this upper hose won’t fit the 2005 Saab 9-2X, which is mechanically identical to the WRX. Can you confirm this, or fix the fitment guide? Thanks.
  • Q: What size clamp   kauaiq575996 years ago

    What size clamp and is there one you can recommend sold here?
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  The outer diameter of the hose is 1-7/8 and you can use a 2 or 1.75 clamp, but the 2 inch clamp would need to be tightened nearly all the way. We currently do not have the 1.75 clamp listed.
