Hopefully this is all I need. Have you replaced these parts on the m62 engine? Is the space really tight like upallnight said?

I can't speak to the 4.4 as we have the entire engine out right now. But I can try to look on my 4.8.

For this all I ever use is a small flat blade screw driver to wedge underneath it the overlapping piece of the factory hose clamp.

Do you guys have the part number to the correct clamps that fit these hoses?

I found these clamps but not sure if it'll fit or how to clamp it on securely.

Can't we get regular hose clamps that can be tightened with a flat blade screw driver?

Yes. That is exactly what I was speaking of earlier. I have a range of sizes in regular metric hose clamps. My dealer uses these. Or at least has them on hand to sell. I would expect that is because they use them when making repairs.


I would never make use of a crimp on clamp with the exception of crimping the band on a CV joint when rebuilding the axles.


BTW, here is a set. Or here.

Never tried that but this connector on the X5 power steering is in an awkward spot with little to leverage against. This tool just presses over the connector and releases it so you can then work the hose off.

Oh, you're talking about the end that fits on the cooling lines? IIRC I usually just take needle nose or linesman pliers opened enough to fit on both sides of the line and push down enough to release it.

Good news, after the inital leak after topping off, there are no more visible power steering leak.

Very strange, but I did tighten up the hose clamp that secures the hose running from the bottom of the reservoir.

Maybe it is that simple for me. Hopefully there are no leak at other places.

If the hoses are leaking at the bottom of the reservoir, you can tighten them until they break and you will still have leaks as the hoses get brittle. Two options; Replace them or snip off 1-1.5 inches and stretch the hoses and reclamp. Now you have another 1-2 years of life.

Recommended approach is replace them. Why would you cheap out on a few hoses?
