Rear Coolant Line Replacement

Hey guys,

Bought one of the braided rear coolant lines from BMC to spruce up under the hood of my R/T. The line runs from the top of the coolant tank to the firewall where it connects to another line running parallel to the firewall.

Question is:

1. I don't see what type of connector is on the back of the line where is connects to the other line. Is it just pushed on a barb or something else?

2. Will this line have coolant in it? Should I expect a mess when I take this off?

If you have changed this could you please advise? Thanks in advance!!

The line you are referring to does not disconnect from the tee fitting, it is a solid piece. You will have to cut the line and use a double barb fitting(coupling) to connect or cut the entire tee out and replace with a barb type tee. If you do not want to cut the lines you could get the tee and 2 lengths of new heater hose to replace the existing. I have this same line and will be installing in the next week or two along with a firewall cover. If the engine is cold My original plan was to replace all heater lines with braided but since I've decided to go with the firewall cover they will no longer be visible. Check out the link below detailing how to go with all braided if you decide to go that route. This was a post by 08ChallengerDad, he did an awesome job on his engine bay and shared in detail what you need to do this.
