Thanks Ken! Great illustrations of the quick disconnect.
Unfortunately, the metal on my van's pipe, was too corroded underneath the quick connector and the plastic connector came off in pieces.
I performed an emergency repair. When it broke, the plastic connector sheared off right at the metal factory swedge. I cut off the factory swedge, right behind and reinstalled the hose with 2 worm clamps.
This hose goes from behind the t'stat housing, to behind the engine, in front of the firewall. Access not good. One end tees off to the aux heat line, the other goes back to the water pump area.
I found what I think is the part for the assembly on
Ebay: KH-51, HVAC Heater hose assembly.
I will include pics later, of the emergency repair 7 after I install the new assembly.
