I need to replace all my heater hoses. The radiator hoses look easy, but several of the heater hoses appear inaccessible without first removing some engine components. I'm thinking this might be one job I let a shop do for me.

Has anyone here replaced their own heater hoses? How difficult was it?

it gets alittle cramped when youre replacing the ones to the heater core, but other than that, they are all pretty much accessible. maybe one or two clamps under the intake

If you are doing all the hoses, it would be a good time to change the cork board gasket on the throttle body. It has a habit of spitting coolant when it gets older.
