Do you mean the big hose from the top of the engine to the radiator? A special tool is necessary to loosen the hose clamps. With the clamps loose just remove the hose and put the new one on - you can reuse the old clamps if they are OK or you can replace them. You will then need to refill the cooling system using a 50/50 mixture of red (dexcool) coolant and water.
