Hi All, Well my Volvo broke down on the side of the road for the first time a couple weeks ago. The coolant pipes that feed the cab and sleeper heaters ruptured. Anyone replaced this part? I am having a hell of a time with it! First, I figured out that I had to remove the front shock absorber to get enough clearance. Of course the top and bottom bolts were rusted. Even my 1" impact was no match. Ended up having to cut them off with a cutoff wheel. Anyways... I am finally trying to put the truck back to together and it seems that the Dorman 936-5502 aftermarket part doesnt fit very well. It is quite a bit bigger than the OEM part. The Dorman site claims it fits. They even boast that they improved on the OEM design by making it out of stainless. https://www.1aauto.com/volvo-vhd-vn-vnl-bunkhouse-heater-tube-dorman-936-5502/i/dmhcm00001 I am so tempted to just run a pair of 7/8 heater hose and do away with the pipe completely. Anyone else have any experience to share?
