Tip for replacing 'Stat on 'Leaf
As we know when you change these 'stats the bolts always shear!
Think its part of there design, how thoughtful.
If you do how to remove the sensor housing to get the bolt out see below, it maybe of some use.
Little tip :- If you have to remove the two hose pipes which go into the engine block to get the bolts out, its a nigh on impossible to get the hoses back on with the spring hose clip.
You can't get the pipes in with them closed and you can't get the pliers in to open the clips.
Answer:- With the clips off the car, open them fully and cable tie them open across the tags in the open position. Put them back on the hoses and push the fitting back on. Once they are in position cut the cable ties and they close back onto the hoses!!!!
