I have discovered a leak on the bottom hose going to rad...
Not a biggy I thought, I have ordered a new hose in, but taking a look at it today it looks impossible to detach hose from rad.....
Please tell me its not a bumper off job.??
Anyone tried this? Is it possible to remove rad to get at hose?
Its the hose on the drivers side that goes from exspansion tank to the bottom of rad..
If anyone does know have they a guide for please?

That sounds as though you have the bayonet fittings. Fortunately I don't have on mine. According to Haynes you have a locking ring which needs to be turned anti-clockwise until it hits the stop. Press the connector away from the hose to ensure the two retaining lugs are free. Pull the hose complete with connector from the rad. Recover the O-ring and replace it.

It looks like a std connector on service.citroen. If there is not enough room to get in to undo the clip / force off the old hose, then you will need to get the rad loose at least. Never done it, but it looks like there are 2 clamps at the top, so should be possible to remove it via the engine bay.
