2005 Equinox Windshield washer sprayer..drives..engaged..hose

This answer was rated:

2005 Equinox Windshield washer sprayer on front windshield barely reaches window. Fluid drains out under drives side when washer engaged. The pump appears to work but I think the hose may have frozen and broken. How do I change the hose from the resevoir to the nozzles? Also, the bottle freezes everytime it gets below 30 degrees and we drive on the highway. Even with fluid rated to -20F.
