2001 Mustang GT Heater Hose Install

I have tried to search for this but came up with nothing (surprisingly...if anyone else can find something please post a link). My Inlet hose broke last week and for now I hacked up both inlet/outlet hoses and bypassed the heater core.

My new hoses (inlet and outlet) are on their way. My question is regarding the outlet hose that runs to the pipe underneath the intake. Seems like it may be quite the challenge to replace the outlet heater hose. Can anyone share some advice/experience on how to do it the most efficient way? Does the intake manifold need to come off?

As always, thanks for all the help and advice!

Dealt with this hose on somebody else's car recently.... It's not too bad to get at despite how it might look to be. Just gotta get your hand in there with some pliers so you can work the clamp loose and work it off the manifold nipple, then just twist and turn the hose until it comes off the nipple. It is a tight space, and can be a little difficult depending on how meaty your hands are.

Otherwise, no you don't need to remove anything or take off the manifold to get to it.

Must be why I couldn't find anything

I had my uncle look into it as well and his shop database says 1/2 hour to replace it. I know what I'll be doing Sunday afternoon. I'll probably prop myself on my strut tower brace. Thanks, Socal!
