From my 02 wrx (63k miles)



As you can see from the pictures, my upper radiator hose was rubbing on one of the fans on the radiator. The fan had pushed the extra piece of rubber on the hose off to the side and started shredding the hose away.

The hose was on all the way at both ends. The fan is secure on the radiator, and the radiator is secure as well. My pitch stop mount is intact. I'm not having a really rough idle so I don't think my engine mounts are gone.

I'm trying to figure out how to stop this from happening again. Any ideas? I could make the hose end shorter, but I'd rather solve the problem than work around it.

my P/S pulley rubbed a hole in my upper hose just like that.....I matched it up at the parts store with one that was close (I don't remember exactly, but it was for a dodge ram) cut it to the same length and put it on.....that was almost 2 years ago and no more problems.....probably just one of those screwy things that happens
