Heater hose replacement on 96 E350

Hi Folks
I am hoping you can give me some advise.. I would like to replace the heater hoses on my '96 E350, they are original. I have changed heater hoses on other vehicles but these have me confused. I see no clamps where the hose meets the heater core. Also there is "T' link in the middle and my local auto parts store did not even show the hoses in the catalog. Do any of you have a link to instructions, or hose diagrams, parts, or any info on how to proceed. I attached some photos of what I have now.

Thanks for your help

" Ford has a better idea "
Sorry just had to say it , exact replacement heater hose would only be available from Ford. If they still supply parts for your 19 year old chassis, they're only required to supply parts for 10 years.
The aluminum , crimp clamps , can be cut off with a dremmel or similar tool and replaced with standard hoses & clamps , brass "T" should be available from your auto parts store 5/8" should be the size.
I can't tell from the second photo if there are quick disconnects at the heater core, that require a special tool , similar to A/C lines.

You can cut the heater hose and remove the " T " and practice removing the " crimp clamps " on the bench , before you go after the ones on the heater core.

Thanks. After more research I find I have a Quick Loc attachment at the heater core junction. see new pics. They sell a Quick Loc with 5/8 nipple so you can make your own heater hose. Yes they even make a custom tool to remove the quick loc. I hear I can rent from local auto parts. This is the route I'll have to go.

That particular type of quick disconnect , didn't require a special tool that I ever saw. Used to use 90 degree , bent nose , needle nose pliers, to squeeze the white tabs out side the end of the black portion of the connector then pull the hose away; the white portion will stay on the metal tube , but can be removed with a pair of small screw drivers, lifting the internal tabs over the lock ridge on the metal tube.
