You wouldn't think so.

I'm going out today to smear more wheel bearing grease on the 2004 and 2006 fittings.

(For those wondering, the grease has not adversely affected the hoses.)

Thanks for the follow-up.

I wonder if part #56 in the diagram is the proper Wye fitting part for the T1N cooler coil fittings that rust out?
Nope.
Parts descriptions. (Didn't notice the scroll down.)

#56 = A 000 835 06 32 CONNECTION - ONLY WITH AUXILIARY HEATER

#58 = A 004 997 01 90 CLAMP - ONLY WITH AUXILIARY HEATER 9.8-12.3 MM KL1
(Too small size. NAS aka NAFTA OM647 [rusted] Fuel Wye would likely need a 13-14.5 MM clamp.)
