The Older I get the Better I Was!
Thanks for the link Ol' Jeffers. Completely answers my question. I haven't had a look at mine yet. It's gone dark, cold and crappy up here in the Northwest so I'll wait until tomorrow morning to have a look. The radiator is supposed to arrive tomorrow, so I'm looking forward to this getting under way. It's probably a good thing I have all of next week off... I can see Christmas Day rolling around and the radiator still not being in. :censored:
The hardest part of a radiator change for the man on the street is the removal of the hose clips unless you have the correct tool to do so. A Mole grips is a good way to hold open the clips as a second best.
Thanks Geoff, I'll keep that in mind. Having dealt with these types of clips before, I know how difficult they can sometimes be. Would I be better off getting some regular type hose clamps rather than messing around with the ones Citroen have installed?
If you can get them off then there is no reason to not put them back on, as much as I prefer the Jubilee clip for it's convenience I have to concede that the current type automotive hose clips are better in service as they tighten more evenly and don't cause localised damage like a Jubilee can.

Stick to the same clip's if you can they are sprung to the right pressure a jubilee you can over tighten
