Yes, just cut the metal line out, leave it bolted in and just remove the metal so you have enough to slide the bubber hose on, make sure you use a ratchet to titghten the hose clamps down nice and tight.

Why is my 1998 ford contour over heating and my heater no longer works

Radiator is corroded, plugged up due to age. Same with the heater core. You door vents might not be working, which could also result in a no heat situation.

coolant line for rear heating of the truck find out if they can be connected. u may see a nipple where the hose goes if so replace with a rubber heater hose. if nipple broke get new box from junk yard, buy new hoses and clamps and reconnect. you may need a/c rubber rings for the two ac lines. remember if replacing the box car should be cold your dealing with coolant. and release pressure from the ac lines before servicing
