Water bubbles up at the overflow hose where it connects to the front of the engine. It smells like a radiator leak. Does this require a new part or is there something else I need to look for? (2010 LR2 w/ 60k)

Welcome to the forum
In general-no leak is a good leak.
Plastic line exposed to heat for 10 years likely needs to be replaced

Thanks! Just yank it out and replace? Any tips on how to remove the hose without breaking the connector or other parts?

there's another recent thread about how to remove your old broken plastic fittings when they disintegrate (-;

The gist of it was this:
Remove your fitting as usual
If the fitting breaks leaving the threaded portion inside the block, then:
Pound in a flathead screwdriver and unwind (possibly damage thread)
Insert something and use epoxy to fuse to plastic insert, then unscrew
