Here is how to replace the orange EGR cooler hose without removing the intake manifold or EGR cooler.
Start by identifying the leak. This leak is usually present for a short time after the engine has fully cooled down. A few drops of coolant will appear to be dripping off the lower rear corner of the right cylinder head.
Any chance you know and could post up those part numbers?

I had the same problem. I put the hose on the housing first before I put it back on. This worked the best for me, I could not get my fingers around the hose. I have not seen anymore fluid on below 25 DEG days.
Holy batman... Just spoke to my local dealer.. they want $400...I say again, $400 to replace the EGR cooler hose...I already have the hose, coolant and gaskets that go to the little housing that the hose hooks up to opposite the EGR cooler. I about hit the floor.
I think I will try this repair myself....I hope it turns out well...lol

if your good you dont have to take the turbo or pedestal out
My hose appeared to be intact, but the cheap clamp Ford used didn't seem to be tight enough. I cut the old clamp off (without removing the turbo) with some diagonals and slid a regular hose clamp around it, snugged it up, no more leak...(did get a charley horse in my hand from contorting it to thread the hose clamp together...)
