Coolant leak/exploded coolant system view?

Hi all - sorry for not looking in the search area - I've been looking for hours before I landed here and can't find what I'm looking for.

My 2001 Disco 2 has a tremendous coolant leak - found the site of leak-but I need an exploded view of the hoses from the middle of the engine area and to the right. I'm not able to find it on my RAVE file but saw an exploded view of a drive shaft - which is exactly what I'm looking for - only for the coolant hoses.

I know I'm vague - I appreciate your help...in advance. Don't hesitate to ask me to clarify and I will try. As of now, it is parked 30 miles away from my home and I'd like to get it fixed tomorrow without having to tow it to a shop.

YES!!! Thank you! Now - it is leaking between #5 and #7 - do you also have what each number represents by chance? You've been a tremendous help!

Not to hard. but it's easier if you pull the t/b off the intake. if you go that route, order up a gasket that goes between the t/b and upper intake. although you might get lucky and will not tear it when you try to separate them. the little clamps on the hoses can be a PAIN also. just replace them with small hose clamps..

Be ready for an antifreeze leak while doing this.

Oh yeah... some people chuck the gasket at the heater plate and use a thin layer of RTV. clean it up real good, before reassembly.

I went the RTV on one of my Disco's and working like a charm. Also a good time to clean that throttle body up real nice if you go the removal way.

Y'all rock!!! This was the exact problem. The only downside was having to spend extra money at the dealership cuz I couldn't wait for the part to be over-nighted to me. Thank goodness I have an extremely handy guy. Once we got the part, it took him all of 40 minutes max to get this replaced! Thanks again, everyone. I'll be back.

I think I may have the same problem. Is the heater kit what I need also? I have attached a picture to show where the coolant is leaking. Thank you.
