Gates Heater Hose Adaptor - OEM quality, fit and performance

The Gates Heater Hose adaptor range has been designed so you can replace any heater hose by making the shapes required using the adaptors. Offering OEM quality, fit and performance, Gates heater hose adaptors are also ideal when replacing old, worn-out, brittle original adaptors. Each Gates hose adaptor is a specially moulded, single barb design, quality product that works in seemlessly with Gates heater hoses. The Gates coolant hose adaptors will match or even out-perform the OE equivalent in terms of service life so you can drive with confidence that your coolant will remain inside the engine and your heater can continue to pump hot air into the cabin on those frosty winter mornings.

To ensure the best possible quality and performance as well as compatibility with popular automotive manufacturers, the Gates team have constructed their heater hose adaptors to make sure:

  • The heater hose slides in to the correct depth
  • They have an anti-rotation device to prevent heater hoses twisting
  • It will take temperatures from -40 Degrees C to 250 Degrees C.
  • Keep your engine at optimal running temperature all year round by maintaining your cooling system on a regular basis, make sure you check and top up your coolant, check for leaks around the hoses and radiator, feel for hose weakness from electrochemical degradation (ECD) and tighten up any loose radiator hose clamps. For best results we recommend servicing your cooling system every 4-5 years by flushing the system, replacing radiator hoses, thermostat, coolant and heater hoses. Doing preventative maintenance like this on a regular basis makes for worry-free driving all year round without the fear of unexpected breakdowns on the side of the road.

    How to check coolant hose for the effects of ECD:

    • Make sure the engine is cool
    • Use fingers and thumb to check for weakness
    • Squeeze near the clamps and connectors ECD occurs within two inches of the ends of the hose - not in the middle
    • Check for any difference in the feel between the middle and ends of the hose. Gaps or channels can be felt along the length of the hose where it has been weakened by ECD. If the ends are soft and feel mushy, chances are the hose is under attack by ECD and should be replaced immediately to minimise failure
