They unscrew at the screw fittings at the front of the engine (right above the stabilizer bar), there is a bracket with a 13mm head bolt holding them to the engine block just behind the power steer pump, then they unclip from the transmission fittings. Do all that, then you will be able to maneuver them out of the car. Re-fitting is obviously a reverse procedure.

Edit: You might need to remove the exhaust y-piece to get them out (i've never actually taken them out on there own, i've only removed engines around them).

OK, I went to the dealer, and they are about $100 each for the hose.

Turns out on the VY they disconnect just near the PS pump at the front thats highlight above.
Im thinking, maybe i can just disconnect the hose, then get the old style radiator connectors like on the VR radiators, screw them into the VY radiator, then just get some plan transmission hose and clamp them up.
Possible or am i just nothing but a dreamer ? lol
I just got the car so im broke. Any Ideas would help just to tie me over.
I was also going to try just cleaning the hoses and getting some heat silicon on to them lol

Cheers Guys

Not ideal, but it might work. I wouldn't do it though.

Mabye try one of those mobile hose repair guys? They might be able to fix it on site.

silicon is for plumbers.

you can probab ly get some hoses made up at a hydralics workshop or something which may work out cheaper.
