Am I going to trigger the airbag?

Hi Again,
2000 Ford Taurus 3.0 V6
I am waiting for a heater tube assembly and I notice that my lower radiator hose is a little weak.

I have a Haynes manual and ALLDATA.com and neither give me a diagram and I went on Fordparts. com and it didn't have a clear diagram in how to access hose.

Seems straightforward except for where it looks connected underneath to the waterpump. Anyone have a diagram on this and am I in danger of triggering the airbag sensors which I assume are by the radiator?

Thanks again,
Schleprock

Here's the diagram of the Vulcan lower hose.



No, it won't set the airbag off.

Thanks, I already had found it on the ford parts website myself and made the switch. A little bit of a pain but it's done. Appreciate the help and diagram.
Cordially,
Schleprock
