Smile Rad. tube replacement

Itook my 96 2.3L in for the recall. On inspection, it is recommended that the lower radiator hose tube be replaced. Is this an easy job I can do? Dealer part only? If so, what do I need to remove the original tube with. I am thinking it is a tight push fit. Then inserting the new tube in, tap with a piece of wood and a hammer? This needs to be done soon as it is leaking, slowly right now. I have this weekend free, what is left of it, anyway. Any help would be appreciated!

Should just need a screw drive to remove the hose clamp or a pair of pliers.

Then wiggle the hose off and replace will need to refill with fluid since you will loose some when you take of the hose

Hi STL,
The lower radiator hose tube that goes from the water pump to the lower rad. hose is leaking and will need to be replaced, asap. That is what I was asking about. Just the lower rad hose is easy. Thanks for your quick reply.

Yes. First got the tube part from Ford. Installed it. Leaked. Pulled it. Got the o ring that goes with it.(I didn't know the o ring was also needed and Ford didn't say anything) pushed it on and all done. No leaks. Then I asked about spark plug wires. The set was 117 bucks and another 100 bucks to have then install them. I'll buy my own and install and save the hundred bucks, which I need.
