Engine Cooling problem
1998 Buick Lesabre 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 155000 miles

The water hose ( plastic elbow) that connects the intake manifold to the idler tension arm assembly ( water pump housing?) Has a leak in the O ring. What is the easiest way to remove and replace this? Does the manifold need to come off? Easiest way?

Thank you Larry

If you look careflly there may be a bolt with a plate holding it in and it would be just to remove the bolt and pipe, clean the area out and replace with anew o-ring.
