Default Replacing heater hoses -any advice or tips

Im about to replace the 3 hoses from the engine to the heater (through the bulkhead) on a 144 Any advice, or tips

Will air bubbles work their way out? Or do I need to prime in some way?

Cant find anything online regarding replacing the hoses

The hoses that go through the bulkhead on any 1-series Volvo are a pain to change due poor access. I cut the last ones off as they had sort of set onto the metal pipes: buy decent clips and lubricate the new hoses after cleaning up the spigots and they go on far easier (on an Amazon anyway). Those on my B30-engined Volvo 164 look as old as the car, so must do that sometime.....
