How do I replace this tube in an '02 Focus VTS? (see pic)
This tube is part of the coolant system and has a wicked leak in it. It's a plastic tube and the leak is from the tube itself and not a bad connection with a hose (little hole in the plastic).
My local dealer has the part in stock for about $25. Looking at the tube it looks like it's been bolted into the body but it looks like I might have to behind the fan to get to the nut that attaches the bolt.
Before I get involved, how hard is this to remove and could this be done by a novice with basic experience?
Here is a pic of the tube looking from the engine forward to the front of the car (you can see the hood latch in the upper left).
Any help would be nice!
