Another semi common place for them to leak is on the passengers side where they go thru the fire wall.

Had mine do the same thing after some spirited driving with a GTO. I replaced it with a T-bolt hose clamp. Problem free ever since.

Well had this happen again. This time no launch it just slipped off. Managed to get it to the dealer after putting the hose back on and adding coolant. Dealer wanted $300 to replace the upper rad hose and U-joint... I told them no. Old hose, new coolant, $113.00 for the flush. /sigh
