Sorry, with the engine at operating temp, gauge a fraction to the left of centre.

You mean the temp gauge? I replaced my hoses last year.One moment they were fine, then I checked again: swollen to the size of a loaf of bread... When in doubt, replace. But don't forget to check other possible problems with the cooling system. Search will help you out a lot!

Hot or cold?
Mine cold- no problem, squishy.
hot- very hard

What he said. Upper hose - hard, lower hose, not as hard. Heater hoses, not hard.
