Leaking antifreeze and I noticed it was coming from underneath the car in the back by the oil pan. I lifted the car up on jackstands and realized it was a black metal pipe/ rubber hose combination which is crimped together with a silver piece of metal. This assembly connects to the heater core against the firewall. I ordered the part on 1AAuto which also had the video procedure posted on youtube. I removed the passenger side cowl and the driver side cowl to access. I also removed the wiper arms. You need a long 90 degree needle nose plier to remove the hose clamps from underneath the car that are connected to the firewall. Then basically all you do is the reverse to put it back in. It is not brain surgery but it is time consuming and frustrating putting those hose clamps back on

The car overheated, discovered the radiator overflow was bone dry. Filled with water to get home. A week later, happened again. No stains on driveway but I'm told I need a heater hose kit replacement.
