Anyone got any idea how difficult it is? I don't have specialist tools but can fix most things.

If you can get to it yes, probably just two jubilee clips.
Would help knowing the vehicle though #-o

Lol, sorry, it's a 2005 TX2.

It's just the lower hose apparently has a small leak. I just need to know if it's a bitch to get to that other clip, and if I have to remove anything else to get to the hose.

Where is the drain plug? and do I have to worry about anything else when doing it (every time I work on the cab, it seems there something else that has to be removed i.e. like removing the oil cooler to get to the starter).

Don't need to know that - once you undo the hose it'll drain !!
But more than likely on the bottom corner of the radiator.

Think it's east to do the bottom hose! Don't think it's very big Is it? Usually just on with jubilee clips on txs.

The drain plug is at the bottom of the radiator if your looking say from under the cab head first laying on the ground it's on the left near where the auto box pipe is to cool the gearbox

You don't need to take the oil cooler off to change the starter it's just a tight job and a pain but it can be done!
