PROBLEM

The hose assembly on top of the charge pump needs to be rerouted on certain 259D3 Compact Track Loaders and 236D3/ 42D3 Skid Steer Loaders. The existing hose routing may contact the air plenum under the cab resulting in noise being transferred into the cab and possibly causing damage to the plenum.
