Hi Guys, maintenance time & I just drained the coolant from my 2012 Vaquero and am having issues getting the radiator hose re- connected. My question is has anyone removed or disconnected the harness of the electrical device mounted below the radiator to gain better access to refit the hose ? Also what is this device?
Thank you in advance.
Be safe.

Don’t know if you have a factory repair manual, so here is a link to download one. Also a link to an OEM parts supplier with diagrams. Have found the parts diagrams help show how things are assembled. Take your time with the hose. Even if you have to walk away for a bit and revisit it later. Hope this helps.

What Tourer Said! Take your time....
Also, get a jar of vasoline, get a small dab on your finger, wipe it on the inside of the hose where it fits on....won't take nearly as much force to slide it back on.
I keep a jar in my toolbox at all times for gas lines, coolant hoses, etc....
