It takes a considerable amount of work to reach the water hose. I was already changing the water pump so I was half way there. After 18 years and 180,000 miles it showing signs of needing replacement. The hose was slightly too long so careful trimming was needed. I only needed to remove about 1/2 inch. Next carefully clean the pipe coming from the intake with a wire brush to insure that the new hose will seal properly. Place the intake end on first and then the water pump end and align the clamps so if you need to adjust them you are able to.

Product does not last very long. I have to replace it on average about every 6 months.

    This hose is difficult to install any other time if you aren't doing the water pump. Highly recommend you replace it at the same time with water pump.

          The product was overall good quality. I understand this is meant for a few various different applications across makes/models. My 97 Ram 1500 seemed to not be the perfect fit for this hose. The hose was cut a bit long. It fit and was installed with no other issues, however.

            Comments about CARQUEST by Dayco Curved Radiator Hose:

            This is a simple but such an important part! Advance has it under a generic name of Curved Radiator hose. As in other reviews, the true name for this part is Water Pump Bypass Hose and it is a quite difficult part to get to and replace (at least it was on my 2002 Dodge Ram Van 3500 5.2L). But in my opinion it is an ESSENTIAL part of the water pump replacement process. 1st: It makes it easier to install the new pump with the old hose not being in the way as the new one can be slipped on after the pump is secured. 2nd: the old hose tends to get very hard and may even be next to impossible to remove from the old pump without damaging or simply cutting into it. 3rd: its replacement WILL PREVENT LEAKS!
            This new hose might be a bit longer than necessary but can be easily trimmed to required length. Overall, a difficult part to install but well worth it in the end.
            P.S. To get to it on my Dodge I had to loosen 4 bolts holding a/c compressor, move it aside with all of the hoses still attached (no need to refill a/c system :-), remove the alternator and the big bracket supporting the alternator. Only then, I could get to the actual hose! GOOD LUCK!

              just like the previous guy said it works after you cut about 1/4" off of the straight end. My old one split down the middle...I hope this one lasts longer since its such a pain to replace.
