It really isn't that bad. It only took about an hour.After reading the links I consider myself **** lucky to have accomplished this without removing anything. It took a lot of luck in having a clamp I was able to tighten with one finger. Yes you heard me.thats all there is room for and about 20 minutes to attach 1/2 inch hose with 2 fingers . Doing it according to the link, which I am sure is the correct way to do it looks like a big tough job.these hoses should have been fitted on every Spark before assembly was complete . It would take about $1 in parts and 2 minutes.
Jeremy - I appreciate the link! Extremely helpful!! One quick question: when putting the LH support for the Trim Ring/Nozzle, how did you get the newly installed hose adaptor from the flush kit out of the way so you can reinstall the LH support?Visit link for instruction on how to install Flush Kit on iBR equipped Sparks.
Glad that was helpful for you and your very welcome... It is nice doing things yourself. One, you save money, two, you know it is getting done with care and right, hopefully , and three, now you know how all that goes together and you will be able to fix things in the future.Jeremy - I appreciate the link!

I can see in your picture that the adaptor is bent downwards slightly. Did you just hammer the plastic until it was bent enough to install the LH support or possibly loosen the screws to allow it to sit at an angle?
Appreciate the help so far. It's been very rewarding doing this by myself!
*** Helps if you install the part right-side up!! Turned it 180 and everything fits beautifully! ***
