I would be really hard to get a pic of it best way i could describe it is the upper hose dead center of the engine, bottom side of the hose almost sits on the fan shroud, the shroud has risen fins on the top of it and has rubber a slit in the botton side of the hose, cant see it i only felt it when i grabed the hose to move it outa the way to install the bracket for the cai, it may be hard to reach under the factory air box and duct work but not impossible

Obviosly this is the original hose it does have 53xxx miles on it but this shouldn't be happening im sure the 2.4 uses the same hose and the radiator mount would be in the same spot i can't be the only one with this problem i have search it and not found a thing unless something is missing from my car i did a car fax when i bought it it hasnt been wrecked

Just went over to check the 2.0 engine of lllfly...it also had the identical problem of the shroud cutting into the radiator hose...so I went to check my car...2.4 engine. It is a completely different set up and no problem exists...as noted in the past, LESS IS MORE.

Description of Radiators...the hose from the 2.0 begins on the right side and veers left...the hose on the 2.4 begins on the left and veers right....hoses on both cars are different sizes.
