EGR Cooler hose

So, the small blue hose that connects the EGR cooler to the oil cooler is leaking. Does anyone have the part # for the hose? Also, how hard is it to replace? i'm thinking of fixing it myself instead of paying ford $100 for the warranty deductible. But it depends, on how much of a pain it is to replace and how much the hose costs.

The part number from Ford is RH-153. To replace this part requires removal of the hot side charge air cooler tube assembly (passenger side). Once removed, you'll need a TX-27 or TX-30 bit and a 1/4" drive ratchet wrench to access and remove the oil cooler outlet top cover. Using finesse, remove the bottom half of the outlet and cooler hose as one assembly. When replacing, slide new hose onto EGR cooler carefully (not too far that you can't reach under the turbo to grasp it forward). Once the oil cooler outlet bottom and top halves are re-installed, slide the new cooler hose forward onto outlet tube CAREFULLY until it stops at the end of the outlet tube. Rotate the cooler hose until it stops. Re-install the charge air cooler tube assembly.

Ford pays us dealer techs 1.0 hour for this repair under warranty.

thanks a bunch for the write up. doesnt sound too complicated, i think i may tackle this my self once it warms up a little bit. Or, i may just delete the EGR completely.

if this is leaking, could this have caused my HG to let go even with ARP studs?
i'm thinking that this along with having the EGR cooler still intact caused my HG failure with ARP studs.

Either you have your right foot on it, giving it too hard and/or you have it "chipped" above and beyond its limits, or a combination of all of the above, if you still have issues with heads/gaskets even with studs.
