Dizzy changing coolant hoses?

I want to change all the coolant hoses in my 1992 sc, the question, how do you remove that metal/rubber hose combo that runs from the recovery tank up under the torque axis mount, around the corner and into the heater core? only way i see is to remove the TAM mounts mount, wich is about impossible to get to seeing as its bolted to the body and theres no room to get a wrench in there with the motor being right there..the metal hose is not bad but i would like to replace the rubber parts that are made to the metal pipe, so i guess i have to replace the whole assembly..?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

yeah, that hose seems to last forever, imo i would leave it go, unless the rubber is obviously bad. you do have to remove the motor mount bracket, the hardest part of that is getting the four bolts off on the inside frame rail, its a little tight..

no, it doesnt seem to be bad, but the car has close to 200,000 miles on it so i thought they might go bad soon, but if their not prone to leaking, i may leave them alone..?
