Default 98 Buick LeSabre Heater elbows tensioner.

Does anyone know if they make a metal replacement for the heater hose elbows that slide into the belt tensioner? I already know and replace the coolant elbow at the intake with a metal one. Having to do some work on the 98 and would like to replace the plastic ones if there are metal replacements.

There are: Dorman Heater Hose Fitting 47065HP- Read2Reviews onDorman #47065HP

There has been reports of the occasional sketchy O-Ring on the Dorman part, but that is the only concern thus far.

For the longest time there was no metal units, and the world was a much scarier place.

Thanks for your answer but that is the elbow at the lower intake; which I have replaced with the dorman. There are two more elbows or right angle plastic fittings where the heater hoses connect. It would be nice to replace those two plastic fittings as well.
