What's best type of hose to purchase from the auto parts store to replace the bleeder hose -- ID, material, etc?
Probably best to pm me since I think I have an extra one, send me part number and a; address , if you dare

The dry coolant and wetness was persistent and visible. I installed this Valeo/Volvo radiator a year ago. Volvo offered a replacement radiator under warranty. Replaced the bleeder hose too, and filled with coolant mix for -40F.

So far, it is dry and level looks good in tank.
