I have a 2014 wildcat trail. One of the coolant pipes has sprung a leak and I want to replace both tubes. It looks like they built the vehicle around the tubes. Anyone have suggestions on how to replace them?

Bottom skid plate off, and center counsel out. Then you can get a better handle on the aluminum snake as to how it goes in.

I have changed both coolant pipes from radiator to engine. Just to let you know, this was an adventure. I had to completely disassemble the interior and all rear body panels. The pipe that sprung a leak was almost totally plugged up.

I would also like to know if anyone has any thoughts on aftermarket coolant type for refill.

I use standard Prestone, 50/50 mix with distilled water. I've done one full flush and replace on each of my trail's and no difference between before and after the service. Personally, I like to use stuff that's readily available so if I need to add more I don't have to worry about it mixing with other stuff.
