Hi All,

Had a mate go and look at a Series 2 L400 for me tonight (he's much closer than I am)
He said it was a good looking / sounding vehicle but while on the test drive a radiator hose started peeing water out and a closer look revealed that someone had put a 'universal' hose on it which was too close to a pulley and it has worn through!
He said it was the one that goes from the water pump to the bottom of the rad.
Does that sound feasible to anyone that knows these engines well?
Could it be a sign of something I need to worry about or just someone that has done a cheap fix at some point.

The rest of the vehicle was mint apparently...

Cheap fix.

You can get the correct hose from your local Mitsu dealer, or even a used one from a scrapper. They don't move about, so at some time in the past a previous owner has probably refitted it in the wrong position and the replaced it with the universal one.

The Parts No. is MR126111.

Brill, thanks Lewis.

I'm still very tempted to buy the vehicle going by the otherwise glowing report from my mate and the guy selling it has said he is going to get the hose replaced this week for me.

Fingers crossed I'll be joining the world of Deli ownership soon!  Cool

Oh actually, this is a 3L V6 engine, is it the same part?

Nope!

Both hoses are on the Left side on a 3L.

You need item 10272, which is Part No. MB957108. †Smile
