    No AC & burst turbo coolant hose in 02 WRX

    Hi,

    The turbo coolant hose(hose from the radiator fill tot he turbo, it is bent in an S shape) popped today in my 02 WRX. Possibly coincidentally this happened about 1 day/50 miles after the AC stopped blowing cold. Does any one have any experience replacing this part, is it possible to get it at the dealer counter or a parts house or will I need to order it online?

    The hose looks like it was rather swollen, are there any bigger issues that might have caused this to happen?

    These tend to leak at the fittings sometimes since the factory clamps are just squeeze type and can loosen. I've not seen one burst. I find it unlikely that the hose would be obstructed, and in any case if it were I'd still expect it to relieve pressure by leaking at the fittings via the clamps rather than bursting. Just guessing. Use a factory hose either from a dealer locally or online, your choice.
