Does anybody have pictures or information of how the cooling pipes are mounted just forward of the driver's side rear wheel? I was looking under mine today and happened to touch that rubber pipe and was able to move the entire line running up to the engine. It looks like there is a bracket that should be attached somewhere.

The hard lines under the car are secured, but right after those lines is a rubber line for maybe a foot, then another hard line. That section seems to be just sitting back there.

I think you're referring to the location where the metal crossover pipe mounts to the transmission. This is a Getrag, but they're all simliar.

ok, so there should be a bolt to secure that hard line to the transmission? That is the pipe that I noticed was moveable. I have the 4 speed so it might be slightly different.

That's right. All of them have a bracket welded onto the pipe that bolts to the transmission.

I took a look at this pipe while I was doing the mounts. It seems the hard cross pipe has been cut and has a rubber coupler on it now. Additionally, the bracket that is attached to the hard line felt like it was broken off. Is this the one I need for replacement? http://www.fierostore.com/P...px?s=52394A&d=80&p=1

The pipe right now is just resting on the front transmission mount while the car is sitting. It is free to move around quite a bit as it is, but I haven't seen any leaks in the coolant system at all as of yet (1600 miles since I bought the car). Is this something I should replace as soon as possible or do you think I can wait until spring?

I think I'll just do it right and get a new pipe. Does anybody know if there are instructions in one of the Fiero manuals for removing/installing this pipe with the engine in the car? Is that possible?

Hey guys, I realize this is an old thread, but I got the replacement cooling pipe and it doesn't seem to line up to mount to anything but the top bracket. The bracket that is down near the transmission mount (V6 4speed) is close to one of the mount studs, but if I try to push it over to it, the pipe hits the exhaust up by the top bracket. I can't see a lot of detail in the image posted above and I don't know if that is a 5 speed or if there are any differences between the 5 and 4 speed. Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks,
Ultimoblaze

I dont know either, but it could be a difference in years? Where did you get the pipe?

I ordered it from The Fiero Store so it should be right. Is there a slight difference between the automatic and the manual? Maybe I got sent the wrong pipe.
