    Winterizing: Intercooler Draining 2014 RXPX

    I'm not 100% sure what hose I need to disconnect to expel any trapped water that may have accumulated from condensation in the intercooler. I tried to follow the manual but it isn't very clear. Is the hose with the chalk line in the attached picture the correct hose?

    from the one side of the intercooler there are two water hoses,the one goes to the ibr the other to thehose going to exaust if you disconnect that 2 hoses you can run air from the one and the water will go out from the other .i do it like that and i am ok...

    No. That hose in the pic goes from the waterbox to the resonator.

    Service mgr at dealer told me you don't have to pull any hoses, just run anti freeze in the flush port and it will get in there. That's all I've done for 10 years and have never had a problem, and my temps go to 30 below zero.

    antifreeze cant get in the charge air part of the IC
    and if there is enough condensation water there it would damage the IC
    although it does not seem likely

    If it's an OEM IC there might be a little bit more than condensation water in there!!!!! Having said that, if there is and it freezes, hey ho you needed a GEN3 or 1000 anyway

    I have always run anti-freeze in through flush point for the cooling system, but in the manual it suggests compressed air to blow out the water. (I know OP is asking about charge air side not this). Not sure I trust blowing out? How could that clear out the residual water sitting in the bottom of the waterbox? Surely the air skims across the surface, goes up and over to resonator and straight out. Leaving water in the bottom of the waterbox?

    Just thinking out loud.

    I personally pull my IC every season and clean/dry it out, reinstall in the spring. I do the antifreeze pump trick first, don't trust just pumping air through the lines. Also lube that TB...sucks when it sticks
