Hi there Willie , good evening to you and sorry for the delayed response

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to assist you Tonight

I assume it's the coolant hose behind the common rail assembly

To replace this hose you need to disconnect all the fuel pipes. From the injectors and the fuel pump. And remove the common rail body (sphere with all the high pressure pipes going to it )

Then I always disconnect the thermostat housing and this allows you movement to remove and install the coolant hose

I have attached some images to assist you

If you need further help or technical assistance on this issue going forward willie

Hi willie no worries

Ok roughly the same applies

Remove the intercooler

Remove the dipstick 1x8 mm bolt )

Then remove the coolant hose from the thermostat housing

Then remove /disconnect the thermostat housing and this will let you get at the coolant clip behind the fuel pipes

Hi Brian, the pipe I am trying to remove is the steel water pipe that runs up behind the injector pump. Thanks.

Hi willie the you still need to remove the thermostat housing but you will need to disconnect the fuel pipes away from the pump and injectors to get better access to the clips
