Disconnect both hoses only at the engine (one on the water pump, one on the intake manifold). Leave them attached to the heater core as you pull the heater core. Most of the water will stay in the heater core and you'll just remove the heater core with long ol' hoses atached from the inside of the car.

Cut a chunk out of one of the heater hoses and connect it to the water pump and to the intake (where you took the other hoses off).

Don't worry about ruining the "fairly new" hoses ... replace them with brand new ones when you put it back together. For the low price of heater hose, it makes no sense to do this job without replacing the hoses (you'll need to re-attach them to the heater core and install the big ol' honkin' hoses from inside the car just like you removed them).

You'll always get what you've always got
