Range Rover Evoque: Pipes and Hoses

When removing or installing flexible hydraulic pipes and hoses, make sure that the following procedures are observed to make sure component serviceability:

Range Rover Evoque. WARNINGS WARNING: Suitable eye protection must be worn.

Range Rover Evoque. CAUTIONS CAUTION: If pipes are found to be chafed, rectify clips, mounting points etc., to prevent further problems in service.

Fuel system hoses

Range Rover Evoque. Standard Workshop Practices

All fuel hoses are made up of two laminations, an armoured rubber outer sleeve and an inner viton core. Whenever a hose is removed, make sure that the inner bore is inspected to check that the viton lining has not become separated from the outer sleeve.

Range Rover Evoque. WARNINGS WARNING: Never attempt to repair fuel hoses or rectify leaking 'quick-fit' connectors the fuel hose and connectors must be replaced as an assembly.

Fuel system hose clips

Range Rover Evoque. Standard Workshop Practices

Certain fuel system hose clips are of the 'break-off head' type where a slot in the screw head shears off when the clip is tightened to a specific torque. These clips may be removed using a screwdriver and must be replaced with new clips on reassembly. Clips must be tightened until the portion of the slot shears off. Do not attempt to tighten clips by any other method, do not install any other type of clip.

Cooling system hoses

Range Rover Evoque. CAUTIONS CAUTION: The following precautions must be observed to make sure that the integrity of the cooling system hoses and their connection to the system is maintained.

Hose orientation and connection

Correct orientation of cooling system hoses is important to make sure that hoses do not become fatigued or damaged through contact with adjacent components.

Range Rover Evoque. Standard Workshop Practices

Where orientation marks are provided on the hose and corresponding component, the marks must be aligned when the hose is installed. Hoses must be installed fully on to their connection points, usually a moulded form on a pipe provides a positive indicator.

Hose clips

Range Rover Evoque. Standard Workshop Practices

Markings are usually provided on the hose to indicate the correct clip position. If no markings are provided, position the clip directly behind the retaining lip at the end of the stub pipe. Worm drive clips should be orientated with the crimped side of the drive housing facing towards the end of the hose or the hose may become pinched between the clip and the stub pipe retaining lip. Unless otherwise stated, worm drive clips should be tightened to 3 Nm (2 lb-ft). Make sure that hose clips do not foul adjacent components.

Range Rover Evoque. Standard Workshop Practices

Oetiker clips may be removed by bending the tag (arrowed) and releasing the free end of the clip. Clips must not be reused. When installing new clips, make sure clip is positioned on hose before tightening and make sure that when clip is tightened, the tag is located in the longitudinal slot in the free end of the clip (arrowed in illustration).

Heat protection

Always make sure that heatshields and protective sheathing are in good condition; replace if damage is evident. Particular care must be taken when routing hoses close to hot engine components such as the exhaust manifolds and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) pipes. Hoses will relax and deflect slightly when hot, make sure this movement is taken into account when routing and securing hoses.
