My upper upper radiator hose began to leak from the connection point coming from the reserve into the upper radiator hose assembly. Can I just replace the smaller part or do I have to buy the whole assembly? When I called the delearship they said the assembly is around $150 but I checked online and the part# Km-3026 is available for around $40
have the same problem?

The hose is available for a lot less through the after market
and the # you supplied I think its for the hose assembly and should do just fine

My 2002 taurus is leaking from the same spot. I ordered the part from Napa for around $40. Did you have any luck replacing it? I can't figure out some of the hose connectors.

This hose is designed to fail and damage your engine. It is very expensive here in Canada and difficult to replace.
