Replaces original plastic connector, which often becomes brittle and breaks
Cranbury, NJ… CRP Automotive, a leading source of OE-quality replacement and service parts, offers Rein® Automotive thermostat hoses (Part Nos. CHU0457, CHU0465, CHU0484) as upgrade replacements for a range of popular BMW models. These Rein Automotive thermostat hoses feature an upgraded metal connector that is pre-mounted to the hose to save technicians time on the installation and improve overall reliability.
“The OE hose comes equipped with a plastic connector that has a tendency to become brittle and lead to failures,” explains David Hirschhorn, CRP Automotive Brand Director. “We designed these thermostat hoses using more robust metal connectors to improve service life and give technicians more peace of mind when completing the installation.”
Rein Automotive thermostat hoses are available for BMW models including 128I, 135I, 323I, 325I/325XI, 328I, 328XI, 330I/330XI, 335I, 335IS, 335XI 525I/252XI, 528I, 528XI, 530I/530XI, 1-Series M, and Z4 from 2006 to 2013. The line delivers coverage for over 880,000 VIO in the United States and Canada.
Additionally, Rein Automotive offers the metal connector separately, if only the fitting needs to be replaced during service (Part No. CHC0609).
