Coolant line banjo bolt washer

Post by Bagpiper » Mon Sep 10, 2018 1:33 pm

Hi, recently I had to repair a coolant line at the back of the block. It runs into a banjo bolt at back of the block drivers side below head. I lost the washer where can I get one. Volvo wanted 209.95 for the whole line. Hence the repair of line. Thanks in advance for any help.

I would post a question to FCP to see which exact part you need.

I suspect you're referring to what's known as a "crush washer".
They're usually made of a soft material like copper or aluminum.

Don't know the size, but it should be pretty easy to find one.

Actually, a crush washer is designed to be used just once, so whether you dropped it or not, it should be replaced.
However, I've been known to reuse them after truing them on a flat file.
