After looking into the tiny holes where the front mud flap goes, I was able to guesstimate where the hose clip was located.
- Using a 1 inch spade drill bit, I drilled into the outer sill plate. The hole will be covered by the rocker panel. I might also place a decal or heavy duty orange racing tape over the hole just for extra coverage. However, it is not needed since the hole will be covered by the rocker panel.
- I reached in and loosened the hose clip very easy.
- Now the hose is loose in the front except for some packing foam that is inside that makes the hose slightly difficult to move around.
*NOTE: Please read further down into my other postings. I was able to remove the interior plastic sill. I was also able to reach inside and grab the oil cooler hose and move around the foam. Maybe it is also possibe to un-do the hose clip without having to bring the hole. If I had to do it again, I would try the interior sill first.
I was just all looks, but now will be a collectors item too.
