Firewall Tube Leaking Rusty Water

Anybody know what this piece is? It's been leaking rusty water little by little and Im not sure what It Is. It might possibly be why I get no a/c except from the windshield defroster. Any help please

Yeah. Hopefully it's just the hose leaking. That is the heater core and if it is leaking, prepare yourself for a lengthy job to replace it.
The good news is, if you have to remove the dashboard to replace the heater core, you will have easy access to the HVAC system to do any needed repairs.

And DEFINITELY flush the rust system, err, I mean cooling system...

It should NEVER look rusty ...

Yeah it looks like it's just leaking. I haven't noticed anything bad happening. Is it just the elbow piece that'd need to be replaced?

No. You're going to have to get the whole hose.
Let me know if you find the "quick release" type anywhere. I couldn't find them for my car. Never went to Ford though.... Too pricey.
The clamp on type will work fine.

FLUSH THAT RADIATOR!!!

That is a heater hose. Your car has two of them. I cant tell if it's the right one from the pic.
Why don't you try Rockauto.com. They're website is very easy to order from and if you like I can post a 5% discount code.

I would replace both of them and any other hose that looks bad while you're at it.

The Rockauto discount code and instructions on how to use it is in the General Mustang forum. The current code is in my last post.
