How Do You Replace The Coolant Recovery Tank In A Subaru Out?

0

As your Subaru Outback begins to age, there are parts that’ll need replacement. The coolant recovery tank is one example. Generally, the tanks are relatively durable, but they can begin to leak, which requires that you replace it. To successfully complete this installation, you don’t need to be an experienced mechanic. Place a bucket with at least a 2-gallon capacity underneath the radiator drain plug. On the Subaru Outback, you’ll find the plug on the passenger side bottom of the radiator. Open the plug to allow the coolant to drain into bucket. After draining is complete, pour the coolant into a sealable container. Use a socket wrench to remove the nuts from the bolts that hold the coolant recovery tank in position. Because one or more of these nuts may be in an awkward location, you may need to use a socket extension as well. Use hose clamp pliers to loosen the hose clamps. Then, slide these clamps up the hoses and out of the way. Disconnect the coolant hoses from the recovery tank.
