As you know there are several hard lines with short rubber hoses on the ends.Do you guys replace the whole assembly(they are real expensive) or do you cut off the ends and clamp on a piece of heater hose?

The 1st time this happened to me I replaced the whole line. (This is the heater hose line that has the climate control sensor in it)I think it cost $70. The last time it happened to me I was stranded up north with no Ford Dealer in site. This time I just cut off the old hose and the metal fitting that holds the hose on and put on a new piece of hose. 10 inches of heater hose + 2 hose clamps=$5. It's been holding through the summer with no problems!!!!!!
