When I did it I removed both hoses from the cooler and plugged hose 10 to stop the oil draining from the tank, then fitted a bit of hose to the tube stub on the cooler and put that into a bucket. and refitted temporarily the forward hose (18) back onto the cooler. the reason for the extra hassle is to flush the cooler as well.

Then got the wife to start and quickly stop the engine, refill the reservoir and repeat until I got nice clean oil out.

To get access you need to remove the hose in front of the cooler to tank hose (10) so buy 2 clips (9)

Well 3 days into ownership and my car lost power steering, fluid filing the undertray. So I took it apart today and found no.18 (cooler to rack) spewing out fluid.

Can anyone confirm this is definitely no. 18 in ETKA and the ones in the pics being removed? Thanks

Yes it definitely was this hose. New one ordered and fitted. Was a PITA getting it out as I was being very careful. Wasn't too bad putting new one on and best of all the seller paid the bill.
