    a 04 should have a screw in barb connection
    unscrew them clean and put thread sealer on and reinstall
    may be easier to remove the plate

    X2

    Drain coolant, remove hoses, 32mm socket to remove ride plate fittings, clean threads with new sealer and reinstall fittings then use new stainless hose clamps.

    My previous 04 RXP did the same thing I resealed mine while the engine was out of the hull it can be done with the engine in it's not hard just time consuming.

    1 1/4 socket and wrench will also work

    ANYTHING to prevent pulling the plate. That is a HUGE pain.

    You might ant to change out the spring clamps for some regular hose clamps.

    gloves needed..lots of sharp f-glass in that area.

    yeah once you get those clamps off replace with stainless worm clamps, the best place for those spring clamps is in the garbage, sea doo themselves even started using worm clamps on those fittings in later years.
