If they are not damaged, I doubt that they need replacement. "By the book", you don't reuse them, but from a practical standpoint, you can. But you need to be sure of their condition. To say that coolant at 270 degrees will cause a serious burn is a first class understatement.

Get some CV4 hose if you want some after-market ones...

That's way more affordable. What is the diameter of the stock hoses?

You can reuse them. Mine are originals (2002 model).
