Anyone know - V6 heater connection hoses & routing?

A bit of help please....

Does anyone know for sure - with the 2 hoses that feed the heater inside the car, do they need to flow in a continuous circuit, of can you just blank off the ends at the block.

The heater is coming out of my car and I am trying to work out do I need to join the hoses - or can I just get rid of them all together??

Thanks.

not sure, i would imagine it would be safer to join them to keep the circuit though

That's what I was thinking, but to find something that joins two rubber hoses that run more or less parallel, has a 19mm bore and is a 180 degree hollow U bend - is not easy to find.

I thought of trying to do it with plumbing fittings - but I thought that was a bit [email protected]!

Thanks for the thought though.....

Anyone else.....

Flow needs ro be constant unless you want to cook the rear cylinder head.

Usually heater circuits can be blanked off completely.
The heater feed & return both connect to the thermostat housing, so studying that will confirm.
