Dodge Ram 1500 2007 may have cut wrong hose? Trying to cut heater inlet hose

Asked by Mar 16, 2018 at 11:00 PM about the 2007 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was trying to cut what I thought was the heater
inlet hose to install a flush and fill tee but, after
cutting, none of the tees from my kit fit into the
hose, they're all too big. I'm thinking I may have cut
the wrong thing. I included a picture, can anyone
confirm? I've been doing a lot of googling and
YouTubeing so I thought I had the right hose but I
may have been wrong.

The large hose near the center is a radiator hose. The heater hoses will be going to the firewall and would be roughly 3/4" to 1" in diameter.

I looked again and it appears you cut an AC line. DOH!

Yup, A/C line, time to replace and get the system properly refilled. Have the shop flush the coolant for you too.
