- 34A – Radiator Housing
- 34B – Radiator Hose A
- 34C – Radiator Hose B
- 34D – Radiator Top
- 34E – Radiator Hose C
- 1x CP screw (+1 extra)
- 2x EP screws (+1 extra)
- 1x HP screw (+1 extra)
- 1x QP screw (+1 extra)
Materials: All of the parts in this phase are plastic.
Fit the tab of Radiator Hose B over the recessed end of Radiator Hose A as shown, and secure them together with one (1) CP screw:
Secure the loop end of Radiator Hose A to this location on the Radiator Top as shown (closest to the filler cap), with one (1) HP screw.
Once I installed this screw, I tried to rotate the Radiator Hose A a little to center it and it snapped right off. Don’t do that!
After a few drops of super glue, I was able to carry on without any more problems:
Secure the loop end of Radiator Hose C to this location on the Radiator Top as shown, with one (1) QP screw:
Position this Radiator Top assembly onto the top of the Radiator Housing as shown, aligning the long rounded mounting tabs on the inside. Then, secure the Radiator Top assembly to the Radiator Housing with two (2) EP screws:
Even though this phase was short and simple, I still managed to break something! No worries though, it was easily fixed and the glued parts will never be seen.
