The fan can be a real pain to remove, but there's no reason I can think of to remove the hose, unless it's to allow more room for the fan tools. Not really necessary though, and makes a mess. I...

Can't remember if the '03 models still have the 25 pin diagnostic port in the engine compartment, but if so, you can use mine. I drive through Putnam County every day on my commute.

It's a lot easier without the fan in the way, so if you have a clutch fan (not an electric one), you'll need a long, thin, 32mm wrench to remove the fan from the water pump.
