remove the old one by loosening the screw clamps and sliding them down the hose, then pull on the hose with a twisting motion. Do NOT yank side to side as you can damage the radiator this way. If it is stuck *carefully* cut a slit in the hose (not too deep you don't want to damage the outlet, the radiator is only plastic there) from the end about 1-1.5" in and peel the hose off the outlet.

Compare the new hose to the old one to make sure it is correct, then slide the new clamps on each end, putting them at least 3-4"down the hose to keep them out of the way. Guide the new hose in place, then slide it onto the outlets at least as far as the old one was. slid the clamps to about 1/2" from the ends of the hose and tighten them until they are snug.

Once you've refilled the system and started the engine, watch for leaks and tighten the hose clamps as needed.
