I need to replace the coolant overfill hose. part number km4669 or Ford cutout number 8c633. I have the tube nuts removed and the hoses that attach to it removed. I also removed the oil dipstick. I am working from the passenger front wheel housing. This part snakes around the back above the transmission and behind the exhaust headers. How do I get this old one off. I can cut it out, but then I will need to figure out how to put the new one back. Any help on what else I would need to remove this hose out so I can replace it. Or is it easier to just cut it out and then somehow snake the new one in? What's the trick. Any help would be appreciated.
The original part (the one I am removing) blew out at the manifold. Why they did not make this a metal piece, does not make sense.
