I am re connecting my 2.5 back in the car. I have put my new AC hose on the car for the first time. The room between the exhaust pipe and the lower of the two AC hoses is only about 2 inches. There isnt anything to protect the hose from the heat. Am I missing a heat shield or are they supposed to be like this? Do I need to make up a heat shield of some sort? I havent put the little metal schroud thing for the air breather pipe yet. Maybe it aslo serves as a protector?

Place them behind the existing heat shield (run them along the firewall).

Maybe some one can post a picture of one the correct way they were installed. I know that the 84's were routed different than the later year 2.5's

They should go behind the existing heat shield (arrowed in pic). Although that does not look to be original to me, the originals have pressed in 'ribs' to give them some additional strength.

The ribs are there, ya just cant see them well in that picture. In the picture you can see one where it looks like the insulated part of the harness goes over the top of the metaI. From there straight down. I found the picture I needed to see on page 129 of the Haynes manual.
Thanks to all.

Joe

Here it is placed as it should be. Thanks and a + to all who offered to help me out.
