STEP 6. Remove your alternator and bracket (three 15mm bolts on alternator) the bracket is held on by a 15mm nut on one end and a 10mm bolt on the other end, disconnect harness and remove positive cable (10mm nut)

STEP 8. remove the belt tensioner assembly (three 15mm bolts, one is hidden on the bottom left side) Also this is a good time to check your power steering fluid

this is the assembly once removed, the ends of the fittings broke off on mine because of how brittle and weak they were, i took some needle-nose pliers and carefully removed each broken end from the water pump inlet and under intake inlet

now to put everything back together just follow the steps in reverse order and make sure to top off and bleed the coolant system

HOPE THIS HELPS SOMEBODY OUT THERE TRYING TO REPLACE THEIR HEATER HOSE FITTINGS
