Radiator hose plastic T-connector broken piece

hey guys. I have a 2009 Rav4 L4 - 2.5L. I opened up the hood tonight and saw the coolant reservoir empty. I found the plastic T-connector which attaches the lower radiator hose to the motor is cracked and broken.

Does anyone know the part number to this plastic T-connector? Hopefully I can buy a replacement at O'reilly's, Autozone, etc.

@John Hay, if you cant find this anywhere, just go to the dealer and order it. Bring it with you.

Me too

My first post...this forum has been absolutely fantastic. I recently bought a 2012 RAV4 (Limited, 2.5L) that had this very same problem. It just amazes me that they thought plastic was good material choice for this part. Anyway, not wanting to replace it with the exact same OEM part back, I decided to go with a Gates part instead which I bought from Amazon.com for $20.30
Since this is my first post, I am unable to provide a link to the part, but if you go to Amazon, you can find it by searching for "Gates 23299 Molded Coolant Hose". The Gates hose fit perfectly...hopefully it'll last longer than the OEM part...we'll see.

One reviewer on Amazon said the Gates hose leaked after 4 months. I would use the Toyota one instead if that is the case.

That Amazon review (the leaks after 4 months) were NOT a result of hose nor plastic fitting failure, but rather a result of loose clamps. In fact, the one image looks like the person modified one of the joints on the Gates hose.
Bottomline, I discounted that review because the issue seemed to be attributed to the knuckle-head who installed it.
