Q: Detached hose

asked by on February 12, 2016

A hose is detached.

If a hose is detached, I would try and figure out where it may have come loose from. If you are not comfortable, or unable to find where the hose is disconnected from, I would recommend having a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect the hose and look over the vehicle to determine what needs to be done.
