cooling hose replacement

2001 sable 3.0 DOHC - an upper cooling hose is leaking and I need to replace. There is a molded-in small hose coming off of the main hose and it is broken right at the joint! I'm guessing that this is common. Anyway, the hose looks sort of exotic to me. There are plastic rings holding the hose to a plastic "manifold". Does the whole thing need to be replaced or can new pieces of hose be replaced individually. I've never seen anything like this. Here is a picture of the portion that I mentioned.

Is this a dealer only item? I've looked @ several web sites but so far not seen anything quite like this.

thx,
rob

Re: cooling hose replacement

Thx R.S.LOGAN! That certainly gets me started. That's the one exactly!

I'm going to start taking it apart. If anyone has any further details about buying somewhere besides a dealer, I'd appreciate it.

It looks like maybe the hoses come off the plastic parts, but still not sure. If anyone has anymore comments, I'd really appreciate it. In the mean time, I will start pulling it out of there.

thx again for your help :-)
