Nissan Mechanic: Todd M, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

T​hank you. The hose that you are looking at is a heater hose. It helps transport coolant to the heater core under the dash. This coolant is what keeps the heater hot in cold weather. Here I am attaching labor information for this job. The labor pricing is listed in hours and depends on the hourly rate of the shop.

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
