    Help removing ride plate

    I am having a hard time getting the clamps off the coolant lines that go to and from the ride plate. Is there a trick?

    Heat them up a little,the rubber hose will expand,and you will get it of easily.

    It's not the rubber hose that's the problem. I can't get the damn clamps off. If I can get them off I will just pull the shit out of the hoses.

    I use a small pair of channel locks to squeeze the clamps and twist them down off the hose.

    If your removing the plate be sure to thread off the two plastic hose fittings first, these are located between the two hoses going to the ride plate and the rideplate. Same area you were trying to remove the hoses from, those are actually two short peices of plastic pipe female on bottom and barbed at the top. Easy to damage while prying the plate loose (been there done that).

    Yes thanks. I was lucky and in the process of removing those clamps the plastic piece moved and I then realized it was threaded on.
