To remove it you would drain the radiator, remove the hose from the radiator, remove the mounting bolt from the bracket and pull it out of the water pump with a twisting motion. Clean all components thoroughly and smooth the end of the tube.

To install, dip the O ring in coolant and insert it in the water pump fitting. Then lube the end of the tube with a liquid soap and push it into the O ring while twisting it in a circular motion. Insert it far enough to get your mounting bolt back into the bracket.

The hook the hose back up to the radiator and refill.

Hope this helps,
