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.
