I'm assuming you're refering to the hose that's behind the engine that runs from the cooler into the side of the engine block?

It's much easier to remove the pipe from the engine. It's held in place by two socket head cap screws. Once the screws (bolts) are removed pull it from the block.

You'll need to replace the o-ring seal when you re-install the pipe.

Cut the new hose to length, spray the ends with silicone spray and slip it onto the pipe. Slide the clamps onto the hose and slip the other end of the hose onto the cooler side (the silicone will make it easier to position). Bolt the pipe to the engine (you did replace the o-ring?), clamp the hose and you're finished.

Drive axle replacement is relatively easy on these cars. The nice thing is that you don't have to disassemble things that effect the wheel alignment.

Just to make sure things come apart easy in the future, I put small amounts of anti-sieze on the axle where it comes thru the hub bearings and on the tapered ball joint shafts.

Re: oil cooler hose update

I need to change my oil cooler O ring and the 2 hoses as well.
The O ring I can buy from dealer. Are the 2 hoses regular heating hoses or do they have to be purchased from the dealer? What size are they?

Also, any tips on installing them would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
Regular heater hose will suffice. I "think" they're 5/8" hoses.
