What is the name of the tool I need to get the quick release fittings off the engine for the heater core hose? It's a quick-release hose going to the heater core. What's the name of the tool I need to but to get them off?

Hello,

They are called Spring Tension Clamp Pliers. I have included the directions for the removal and installation of your vehicle's heater hoses in the diagrams down below for you as well. Please go through these directions and get back to us with how everything turns out.

Thanks,

Thank you for the information. But I'm not sure and that looks like the same thing I got mine look like quick release as you would have in a hydraulic line how hydraulic lines go together.

Hello,

Okay, sorry about that. That is the information that the vehicle manufacturer gives on replacing the heater hoses in your year, make, and model of vehicle. So by quick connect, do you mean like the ac hoses that have the three tabs in them. If so you can purchase disconnect tools at your local auto parts store for around ten dollars to undo those. Ou push the two connectors towards each other to release the tension on the tabs and push the unlock tool in and it should slide under the tabs allowing you to unlock the connector. Please get back to us with how everything turns out.

Thanks,
Alex
