The Genuine OEM Heater Hose, part number 6E5Z-18K359-A, has been specifically engineered for 2006-2009 Ford Fusion, Milan, and MKZ models. This integral part of the heating system is designed to convey hot coolant from the engine to the heater core, thereby maintaining the ideal engine temperature and ensuring the efficient operation of your vehicle's heating system. If the current heater hose is leaking, clogged, or cracked, this new part will rectify the problem, preventing potential engine overheating and guaranteeing effective heat transfer.
This product is a brand-new, Genuine OEM part, delivered in the original OEM manufacturer's packaging. It is not an aftermarket part, but exactly the same component that you would purchase from a new car dealership, thereby ensuring strict adherence to the high-quality standards set by Ford.
Tools Needed: Screwdriver, Pliers, Drain Pan
1. Allow the vehicle's engine to cool down completely.

4. Ensure that the connection points on the engine and heater core are clean before installing the new heater hose.
5. Attach the new Genuine OEM Heater Hose, secure it with the clamps, and tighten these using a screwdriver.
6. Refill the cooling system with coolant and check for leaks.
The installation process generally requires around 45-90 minutes and basic mechanical skills.
