I am usually a lurker on this forum, but I now need some advise. 1993 C1500 Suburban 5.7L with rear heat and A/C and 196K miles. I have developed an intermittent leak at the connection of the hose to the rear heater core. It looks to be some kind of quick disconnect. How to I disconnect this quick disconnect? The replacement hose assembly seems to be about $135! for the set. Next I am wondering if I can cut off the flexible hose portion of this pipe/hose assembly and use a 3/4" heater hose to repair this leaking portion. Seems possible on the pipe portion but I do not know what the heater core connection looks like. Anyone else done this repair. All help is appreciated.
