Hi all,

I'm in the process of replacing my upper and lower radiator hoses and bypass hose on my XD1 Elantra with new, genuine hoses. The original hoses are fitted with spring clamps, which are a pain to remove and refit. Along with the hoses, I am considering replacing the clamps with worm-drive clamps, which are generally easier to fit. Some think that the original tension set spring clamps that are OEM should be reused.

What do you think? Keep the spring clamps or replace them with worm drives?

Doesn't matter in the slightest. I personally prefer worm gear clamps, and that's pretty much the only kind of clamp we use at my shop.
