LAS have noticed an increased number of broken hose clips while carrying out vehicle servicing.
The fault has applied to a high number of Ford F53 chassis vehicles with the triton V10 engine. The bottom and water pump hose clips have broken causing the cooling system to leak when under operating pressure, and then stopping when the cooling system cools down.
The same fault has also occurred with the Workhorse chassis with the 8.1 litre Vortec Chevrolet engine. In a small number of cases the top hose clip has broken which clamps the hose to the radiator.
If you’re a customer of LAS Motorhomes and have your vehicle serviced by us, you have no need to worry as we check all hoses and clips as part of our standard service inspection.
