Since I have only had my Avant since last August. I have not had to
replace any hoses, though I did replace my radiator and at that time I
replaced the lower hose which was soft and the two short hoses under the
PS pump as that is a good time to do these since you can move the PS
pump out of the way easily, I pulled mine( the PS pump) which made it
real easy to do those hoses and pulled the radiator with the fan
attached.( this helpful hint came from Scott Mockrey), just keep the
pump as level as possible to not lose to much of the hyd. fluid. I was
not in a hurry so I also cleaned stuff up while in there. I also checked
operation of my afterrun fan before pulling it apart, as replacement of
the afterrun switch is a cinch with all that stuff out of the way. You
did order a new fan control switch for the new radiator right????
