I can get the part number tomorrow at work. On mine it was 3 bolts and loosen the alternator/tensioner assembly enough to be able to slide the old pieces out and the new one in. You will need some lubing grease so that it slides in (put the end in the tensioner assembly first then insert into intake and replace bolts and belts. If you still have coolant in the the car you will lose some out of the intake.

Since we are on the subject of the lovely coolant elbow and when I was down in there the other day...mine looks a little moist.

What'* the deal with these babies Rogue? Are there O-rings??? I'm trying to understand how the seal up and how they fail. This way I have an idea if I should jump on it right away. Moist...not bad and level is still good....

Upper Elbow is part number 24503423
Lower Elbow is part number 12565082

They are both o-ringed on both sides. The plastic ends up getting brittle (due to heat?) and usually breaks of in the intake or tensioner assembly while taking them apart for repairs or upgrades. I had never seen one explode while driving until this weekend.
