While cleaning the radiator I managed to break the "hose nipple thingy" on the thermostat housing cover. Does anyone know how to remove the cover? I couldn't find it in the DVD repair manual. Replacement is ordered. $32.

Thanks!

I man handled it too much!

I'll take a photo of the hose this evening. It's the small hose. I removed the clamp and the hose was really on there. So I started to wiggle it back and forth and that's (I'm sure) what broke it. In hindsight, some sort of lubricant would have made this easier.
