  • Coolant Hose change.. help/advice required...

    Hi peeps,
    I've just taken delivery of some very nice silicone coolant hoses from Forge Motorsport..

    However it's been years since I've done a coolant change etc. on a vehicle so was wondering if anybody else have done this type of job and has any instructions about re-filling the system? (ie, do you just re-fill the expansion bottle then run up until thermostat opens and top up as neccesary?)

    I don't want to cause any damge but not filling the system adequately..

    Any help or pointers will be appreciated..

    ta
