So after finding an enormous puddle of coolant under my PM, I crawled under to check it out. There are 4 cheaply made, designed to fail plastic clips that are suppose to keep the coolant bottle hose in its path from the reservoir tank to the lower radiator hose tee connection. All four plastic clips were broken causing the hose to hang free which ended up leaning on a heat shield and melting the hose. So I stopped by my local dealership and buy a new overpriced hose. I explain to the counter guy at the parts department about the clips and he tells me there are no clips for this hose. I've seen the diagram and they are not shown or listed, but as I was physically under my van assessing and fixing the issue, I know that they are there. I also find it funny because the hoses have four pieces of white tape around them to show where the hose clips are suppose to attach and yet the clips are a mystery to the parts department. Does anybody know a part # for these clips. Thanks in advance.

In my frustration I failed to mention, It's a 2017 PM 2500 Gas. Also now that I have to refill all my coolant is anyone using anything different than the Mopar factory coolant with the OAT. A few years back there weren't too many other options and that stuff is expensive as far as coolant goes. Thanks

The full strength correct coolant is under $25 a gallon at most dealers or $12.5 when you dilute 50/50 it yourself. Why take a chance on something this important to save pennies?

That's a good thought, I'll look into that the for next time trouble arises. I already bought the clips you gave me the part # for earlier today. They are extremely hard to find and are on back order everywhere in the northeast. I must have called 8 dealerships. I had to use on online retailer and pay overnight shipping so they should be here tomorrow. It's my work van so I have to keep in moving. Once again thanks for the advice. I really appreciate the help.
