Goodyear introduces universal heater hose
Etobicoke, Ontario – Goodyear has announced the introduction of E-Z Coil, a metal coil that bends straight heater hose to create configurations that match more than 26,000 part applications. The company says it will eliminate dealers carrying 200 separate parts, and will allow immediate repair, without waiting for out-of-stock or backordered items.
The metal coils slip over the straight hose, maintaining up to a 90-degree bend and preventing the hose from kinking. The coil can be straightened and re-bent multiple times. E-Z Coil also won the Editor’s Choice Award from Popular Mechanics at the recent 2005 Automotive Aftermarket Parts Expo.
