Question Need Help

1991 Pontiac Grand Am, 2.5L

How to replace the bottom radiator hose(from block to bottom of radiator).

I cannot get to the lower connection at the radiator.
Do I have to pull the radiator? Do I have to remove the front bumper?
How can I get to the connection????

You can cut the hose off with a knife and then it should give you more room to get at what's left on the radiator. Have a bucket ready to catch the coolant that will spill out.

Replace the hose and use two new clamps with a gear/worm drive type head. You can then use a 1/4" rachet or a long screwdriver to tighten it.

I tried that - no room to get to the clamp; from front, back, top!!!

The only thing left is to pull the radiator, I guess.

Actually wouldn't be a bad idea. Have it boiled out while you have it out. Chances are it's gummed up as well.
