9 Steps to Install Braided Hose

  • Step 1: Drain the cooling system.
  • Step 2:  Remove your current hoses and hose clamps and inspect for damage or wear. Replace if necessary.
  • Step 3:  Select the correct size of sleeving and unroll. DO NOT CUT.
  • Step 4:  Apply liquid soap or silicone spray on the hose to ease installation of sleeving.
  • Step 5:  Using your fingers, expand the sleeve and slide it on the hose, covering the entire hose.
  • Step 6:  To keep the ends of the sleeving from fraying, put electrical or duct tape on the end of the sleeving, securing it to the hose. Pull the sleeving tight against the hose, retaining the additional length at both ends. Put tape around the sleeving on the end that is cut. Carefully cut the sleeving using a pair of sharp scissors.
  • Step 7:  Using worm gear type hose clamps, insert into correct size clamp covers. Position the clamp so that the adjuster is located in the slotted opening of the cover. Do not install.
  • Step 8:  Open the hose clamp so that it expands the clamp cover approximately 1/8” larger than the covered hose. Slide the clamp covers with clamps onto the hose, going past the tape. Do not force onto the hose.
  • Step 9:  Reinstall the hose onto the vehicle and carefully remove the tape on each end. Slide the clamp covers with the clamps into position and tighten securely.
