I need to replace the coolant hoses above my oil cooler and they have coolant in them. I would love to be able to replace them without draining the cooling system. Do any of you guys have advice on how I might accomplish this?

BTW, joined the 100k club last Friday!! ;)

No idea if they can be replaced without draining the system. But are the hoses actually bad or are they just leaking at the clamps at the oil cooler. I had a leak there that I solved just by replacing the clamps. That can be done without draining coolant.

They are leaking at the clamps, but the hoses are 6 years old and need replacing anyway. Thought I would kill two birds with one stone...
