I have a 1992 500SL that has developed a very slight coolant leak. I have written to the forum before asking advice on the problem. It is a small leak from the connection on the upper drivers side of the radiator that has left a trail of dried white residue running down the radiator. I have decided to replace the hose and clamps. I am not a mechanic, but this seems to be a simple enough repair to try myself. It would seem pretty straightforward. Loosen the metal clamps on both ends of the rubber hose, remove the old hose, Replace with the new hose and tighten the clamps. Am I missing something? Or, problems to watch for? Thanks. JRoe
