Heater hose.

Hi all. I bought a Haynes manual today (no help)and googled for more than 3 hours trying to find what needs to be done to remove the heater hoses from the firewall. I want to replace all the hoses. I have a 06 V6. Thanks for any help.

What part do you need help with?
Is it the quick-release connectors that are giving you trouble?

Yes the quick connect. I wanted to know if is possible to remove the hoses from the firewall without removing the intake manifold and what method to use. I have not started the replace. Waiting on the rest of the hoses. Trying to find out what I'll run into beforehand. Thanks for responding straybullit.

I'm not totally sure, as I have the previous generation of Mustang, but I would be surprised if changing any of the coolant hoses required disassembling the intake manifold. It should be fairly straightforward, with the usual frustrations of working in a confined area.
You will need to get a set of tools to release the quick-connect hoses, if you don't have them already. Sometimes the quick-connect hoses can be stubborn to remove, just keep at it and they will eventually come loose.
Just work slow and methodically, carefully inspecting each hose to determine the best way to remove them. If something does happen to need to be removed to provide easier access to the hoses, be sure to document how it was connected so that it can be reinstalled properly.

Thanks straybullit. I'll see if I can find a tool for the quick connectors. The tabs are at the end of the elbow.

You can purchase an inexpensive set made of plastic, or, most of the "big box" auto parts stores will have a set of "loaners" that you can borrow.
Again, not positive that your car has the same type of heater hose connections as mine, but you will see what type that you have, and what will be required as far as tools go, by inspecting the new hoses.

Good luck!

And you might need a certain amount of posts for the photos to post immediately. Otherwise,the photos may need to be approved by management before they will post.

I don't know if this applies to your situation but it used to be that the heater hose would connect directly to pretty flimsy tubes coming out of the firewall that are part of the heater core. If this is the case be very gentle when removing those hoses, what I use to do is take a razor blade knife and slit the hose from the firewall towards the engine and then carefully peel it off the tube; do not go pulling on it with any force as nothing good will happen if you do.
