As many know, got mine, fitted it, impressed, so i thought i'd write a guide to show you how.

Equipment needed
Fusion water rail
Small socket set
Pliers
2x jubilee clips to fit over hose.
Coolant antifreeze

Time taken
approximately 1/2 hour

1. AS always, wait for engine to cool, disconnect battery to reduce the risk if something slips.
2. Undo air filter pipe and undo retaining nut for maff sensor remove as a whole
3. locate pipe at thermostat end of water rail and undo jubilee clip.
4. use pliers to squeeze the little metal clip at other end of pipe and pull off.
5. Undo the 2 bolts on holding the rail to the exhaust manifold
6. gently pull hose off the thermostat and off the pipe at other ed.
7. with pipe removed, cut through metal clamp holding hose to end of pipe, you'll need the hose so be carefull
8. Place said hose on correct end of new water rail and loosely fit new jubilee clip to hold it.
9. Slide hose onto thermostat housing.
10. Position new water rail on top of exhaust manifold and screw the mounting screws in by a few threads.
11. Slide the other end of pipe on and secure using a jubilee clip.
12. tighten mounting screws.
13. ensure that all jubilee clips are tight.
14. remove expansion tank cap and top up water flevel with correct ratio of water/antifreeze.
15. check for any water leaks
16. refit air filter/pipe/MAF sensor
17. leave expasnion cap off and start engine to let air out of system, ensure there is a steady supply of water
18. put cap back on and enjoy your nice shiny pipe.

Hope to help
JJ

i think the next one is going to be the power steering one, that looks a bit more difficult though as it has a switch in it. and i presume it would be harder to fit.

Was watching a rocker cover on ebay for a bit but it went stupidly high. thinking about the top strut covers, think they look ok. just want to get stuff that needs doing first.

slightly off topic, but do you think you will fit skirts or anything? or are you leaving it standard on that aspect of things?

gonna try and leave it as standard as possible on the exterior side of things. i like the look of the xr/rs skirts with the bumpers, but i also like the standard look if ya know what i mean.

Just looking at this guide is there anywhere else that does this pipe as i can't seem to find it on the Fusion Fabrication site?

Cheers :)
