Having problems with your 1997 Pontiac Grand Am ?
My 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix had a leak at a plastic L shaped heater hose fitting that is located just above the water pump. I found the replacement part Dorman HELP #47065, but when trying to pull old one, it crumbled leaving the quick connect O-ring ends still inside the fittings they were in. I am tempted to just scrape out the remains to replace the new one but am worried about damage to other parts. Any advice?
What u are doing is what a professional would do except add the fallowing, when u are done getting all the large debris out take some medium grit emery cloth (avail from any parts store or hardware) and sand/hone the surface smooth, any nicks or gouges must be eliminated or you can have a poss leak, also coat the rubber seals with a thin coating of silicone rubber sealant, this will further assure you will have no leaks.
