As the title says I need to replace a bad quick connector on one of my rear coolant hoses. Does anyone know if this is absolutely necessary to replace or can i just attach the hose without the connector? If I did bypass the hose then I'm not sure if it would reach or if it would move the hose too close to the rest of the engine. Probably not an issue but I'd rather check with someone more knowledgeable than myself before I do anything.

Any input is appreciated. Pic below is not necessarily the exact same connector but very similar.
