Not having driven one, I can't say, but the price is right to check!! 
Directions  :-)  :

1)  Insert cold brewski firmly in hand;
2)  Approach car, muttering "FINE car, NICE car, AUZGEZEICHNET 
3)  Pop hood
4)  Run hand over hoses while reducing level of fluid in brown glass 

We should all have to do this procedure.........

I've found the bottom hose and the multi-port hose on the rocker 
cover (10V model) turn to mush and/or crack...)
