1999 Mazda B3000 4x4 - Hot water connection elbow replacement??

Asked by Jan 23, 2015 at 11:54 AM about the Ford Ranger

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Help????
Trying to replace the "Hot water connection elbow" on a Mazda B3000 4x4 (Same as
Ford Ranger )
Miraculously, got the old part off..  
But NOW have NO IDEA how it is possible to get the new part back on???
There is another water elbow right next to it, which conflicts with the left one to thread
on..
Is there some trick / secret to this part replacement?
ANY help or tips would be GREATLY appreciated!!  

Thanks

On my 01 Ranger I disconnected the hose, removed the sensor, loosened the elbow off without having to remove any thing else.

To reinstall screw the elbow in, then grab the hose clamp with some long nose pliers and wiggle the hose onto the nipple, screw in the sensor then open a beer!
