    Worked like a charm

    Fit right up. Plan on changing thermostat housing. My old hose was orriginal and practically molded to the thermostat housing. And head on over to the hardware store and get new hose clamps for both ends and a larger one to secure hose to the power steering housing.

    Had to replace my water necks so I went ahead and replaced the upper hose. Now I don't have to worry about removing the hose to change my belt.

    No more worries about it running thru the serpentine belt

    I do not have dual alternators but this hose routes around the serpentine belt. If the belt breaks with the normal set up you will have to remove your upper radiator hose to replace the belt. You would have to wait for the engine to cool and replace coolant. It fit like a glove.

    Unbeatable Price! Superior Quality

    Posted by Unknown on Dec 23rd 2015

    after building up my shopping cart with a new water pump, belt, thermostat, and Riffraff Billet Housing I asked my buddy any other parts i need to do this and he mentioned how stupid my 99 has the upper hose going thru the serp belt. SO i searched for upper hose on Riffraff and found this Beauty. I read other reviews and added to my cart. Let me tell you its well worth the $$. It will save alot of headaches and hair pulling down the road.

    1/10th the cost of other sites

    Was just browsing around for this hose and saw that another diesel performance site wanted $100 bucks for the same thing!

    Early '99 came factory with this, later years don't :-(

    My 'E99 has this hose, and the Serp replacement took minutes. I purchased this to swap for the through hose while I had to take it all apart to swap the failing Serp on my '01. Ordered another setup to change my dad's '02 to simplify future maintenance.

    Vehicles should have shipped with this

    I can only imagine the fun and excitement you would experience road side trying to replace a snapped belt with the standard radiator hose. This will make that a 5 - 10 minute job should it ever occur.
    It is such a simple and inexpensive fix you just ask yourself, "WHY FORD? WHY!"

    No guess work, it is what it is. Won't find a better vendor!

    Don't ask why

    while scratching your head about the OEM upper hose routing THROUGH the serpentine belt. I've got no answer to that but this hose fixes that problem and routes AROUND the Serpentine belt. Sweet baby Jesus.
