Ed, no not at all. Possible that you may need to replace an o-ring or two. Mine have been fine on reusing...but one never knows. O-rings should be easy to find locally in an assortment pack or whatever.
Whenever I replace that hose and/or the t-stat, my std. procedure is to remove the p/s pump. IMO, it's MUCH less aggrivation.

A week ago Monday I had a small puddle under the front of the engine.
Tonight I went digging for the rubber portion of the turbo coolant line.
I have dismounted the p/s pump but it doesn't seem possible to maneuver it
out of the way without disconnect the lines to the pump. Is that necessary?
The small rubber line seems to be intact. I did not find any wetness. It
has been 9 days since the leak, but I haven't driven the car since either.
If it is necessary to disconnect the p/s lines to get the pump out of the

I seem to recall a post from Brett recently about this so I will go look for
