this hose is leaking slowly (notice green sludge). I think it goes to the overflow bottle? Where do i find a replacement and what is involved in changing it?

just go to your local auto store, they should have them. Repco/Bursons.

If you've got enough slack in the hose, you could cut the end off (about 12mm) and use a proper worm-drive hose clamp.
