Metal fitting on hose will not allow the hose to properly stay on the radiator

Hello. The lower hose has a twist lock that holds on the lower hose and the radiator outlet has two O-rings. Sometimes the hose will not lock well once removed and most mechanics recommend replacing the hose with a new one any time the hose needs to be disconnected. If you need help with the radiator hose installation, a technician from YourMechanic can assist or simply perform the installation for you.
