Happy New Year fellows. I have a leak at the rear coolant hose/pressed fitting on the head. This is the aluminum piece that runs from one head to the other and then up to a hose that runs into the heater core. It looks like the pressed fitting has come loose.

Any experience in replacement? Dealer part is 75.00. Labor is 350.00 due to the fact the manifold has to be removed.

Thanks.
