Thermostat housing not hose. That silver thing is the thermostat housing. Held down by two 10mm bolts. Doesn't look like yours has a gasket though. Should be ok to dismantle and open up. Check that your thermostat is working. Easiest way to see if it opens and closes is to clean it up, and dunk it in boiling water.
