Good grief. Looks like they found a solution where there was no problem. I can offer two suggestions. First, that shiny ring around the end of the hose might just be a protective sleeve that can be pushed back to expose the clamp. Next, look at that shiny tab right exactly in the center of the picture. That appears to be a release tab or a locating tab that insures proper orientation of the hose. Whatever it is, it looks like you might have to battle some rust to get it apart.

Looks like that metal piece would slide out releasing the hose. Then insert the new hose then slide the metal piece back in to retain it. This is something new to me also. Can u post a pic of the new hose end?

I looked at the hose and the radiator on rockauto. Com and still can't figure it out. They have some kind of oil cooler built into that hose. I can think of quite a few less complicated ways of accomplishing the goal of cooling the oil and the coolant.
