Nope everything is there it's the two metal coolant lines that connect to the turbo right under the manifold. I was trying to find a easy fix because it was Sunday and the dealership was closed for parts. I ended up going buying 2 new fittings on Monday for $11 each and they just pop right in the new coolant lines there's no threads on the coolant line just a small groove in it and inside the fitting a place the grove pops into the only threaded side goes into the turbo and when it's full screwed in you can still spin the coolant lines around inside the fittings. You just need the special tool to remove them. I was just trying to get back on the road ASAP but I am back up and running now.
Thanks man! And yeah it does look like a little clip could be inside that maybe if you had a small enough pick and a bit of time could manage to get it out. I mean the Cruze specific tool I found online looks like it would go in around the hose and push the clip out of the way allowing the old hose to be pulled out of the fitting or something along those lines. I'm honestly just teaching myself all this as I go from cruzetalk and YouTube I'venever had experience with these fittings until now so I'm not 100% sure. ?? Ahaha I just gave up messing with it and waited to grab new ones. ?Glad you are up and running.
Interesting. I will be under the hood today so I will take a peek myself to see. I thought for sure it was a hidden clip that could be removed with a pick.
Thanks! Yeah I figure3d that was the easiest route I was just trying to get back on the road in a jiffy! Good post though man.That fitting is a one shot. Once you take it off it has to be replaced, the gasket on it goes bad, which usually means the whole line has to be replaced, because of how it works. It's threaded at one end, and inside it, there's a c-clip that opens up just enough to let the flange on the line pass through it, then it clamps down, creating a seal. It is almost impossible to replace that fitting. Recommendation would be to take the lines off of it, install the new fittings in the turbo, then snap in the lines to the receiving end.
