2008 VUE 3.6L
Default 2008 Saturn Vue XR 3.6L Power Steering Cooler location

Hey everyone, been Googling high and low for this question, but am coming up empty.

I am trying to replace the power steering return line w/ cooler on my 2008 Vue XR 3.6L, however, the hose being replaced was just some 5/16 ID trans cooler hose job from some shop that deleted the cooler rather than replacing the return hose assembly.

I purchased the new return assembly kit below from advance auto, but for the life of me can't figure out where the heck that cooler loop in the bottom left of the photo is supposed to mount.



Does anybody have a 3.6L Vue (or just some baller knowledge of the platform) that can either describe where this goes, or better yet snap a photo of the cooler in it's natural environment?

Many thanks in advance!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I have GM service manual but it does not depict location of cooler section.

However, it has instructions to remove the left front wheelhouse liner to change the hose so that's probably a clue.

I've attached that file and another for fuel injection sight shield but two other files are too large to post (LY7 Air Cleaner Outlet Duct R2 and LY7 Power Steering Cooler Pipe R2)..

PM email address and I can send the other files to you - if you still need.

I rarely visit forum but respond to private messages (PM). PM creates email to phone & please include email address with question. Avoid using Visitor Message feature ... I almost never check those.
