Replacing coolant hose (997-106-477-72)

I replaced all the coolant hoses on my 997.1 Turbo cab (6-speed), except one.  This hose (P/N 997-106-477-72) is item #32 in the "M97.70 Water Pump Housing Diagram."  I've removed the oil filter housing, the alternator, dropped the engine 3-4 inches.  Removing the hose at the water pump is easy, but at opposite end... I can see it, but can't reach it, let alone be able to remove the old one and connect the new one.  Hard to imagine Porsche engineers made a regular maintenance item so difficult to replace, so I must be missing something.  Any direction would be sincerely appreciated.

Thank you,
