[QUOTE=LilRoush;8395890]It's a quick and cheap fix. Most parts stores will carry the connector you need.
+1 on it being a easy fix. You should be able to get connectors from parts store.there are plastic connectors inside of the hose.Check your Ford dealer ,parts dept. They should be able to print you a pic of how it joins together. Good luck

thanks for the reply champ! I went to ford and got the part.

Spend about an hour trying to fit my hand near the firewall to unclip the hose from the tube and I failed (missed all of 2nd quarter of the kings game). It seems like I would need to take off some other parts before being able to reach in that area so I would need to have more time.

In reality, it is such a simple fix. Would take about 15 minutes to do so, but I could not fit any tool or even my hand to squeeze that metal clip around the plastic outlet to be able to pull it off the tube.

Any tips, without having to remove anything? And would you guys suggest replacing the inlet tube while I'm at it?

Here is the clip lol

Use a long flat head screw driver to put pressure on one side of the spring clip so that it will loosen the clip on the hose and spin it around to get it in the most advantageous position for removal. Then use long needle nose pliers to grab both spring clip tangs and compress to take the pressure off the hose. Slide the spring clip down the hose away from the mount. You may need to grab the hose with pliers and twist it where it's mounted to break the "seal".

Or just do it the easy way and buy the tool!

Lisle makes one too that you can buy for about $30 at Pep Boys.

I prefer these types of clamps over the screw/worm type because you don't have to worry about readjusting them for aging of the hose.

Just getting them on/off is such a bitch that it makes you want to use the worm style.

Anyways the tool is nice because it locks the clamp in the open position while you maneuver the clamp into place then you release the lock on the grips and the clamp closes in place. If you mess up, no worries, get the outer/inner jaws of the clamp retainer of the tool aligned and squeeze the tool handle to recompress the clamp. Takes seconds.

And, it's easy to work in tight locations.
