Mazda will have a part# for it. you could just buy a piece of 90 degree pipe with a 3/4" O.D., and clamp a short piece of straight hose on either end.

You can buy a coil spring that fits on the outside of a heater hose that will allow you to make tight radius bends with out kinking it. Trying to contort a heater hose into that shape with out a sharp king might be tough.

Try it first though, heater hose is cheap.

just cut it longer...like 10-12", it shouldn't kink, but yeah a worm-clamp will work.

yah, if you use a long(er) length of heater hose, enough for a loop, it will work fine.

i bought one at a junkyard. it was like $20 because they had to go get it off the car. you'd probably do better getting it from MAZDA.
