    Astra 1.8 rear mounted Rubber hoses

    Hi, It's me again!
    ASTRA 1.8 Sport; nearly headless, bar a rubber hose!

    Has anybody managed to get the Rear Hose connector under the cylinder head undone. Haynes says undo the two TORX bolts!! However the water pump housing stops you from getting a "Normal" tool on to it! Any ideas?

    And those new style clips for the hoses, nightmare! The suggested tool in Haynes does not open them up far enough! Any ideas?

    Thanks

    IIRC you unbolt the housing (two long male torx bolts) from the back of the cylinder head and leave the alloy housing on the hose.
