Kia upper radiator hose nub broken

Had to repair our engine recently, specifically the belt system, but noticed when I went to reconnect the upper (small) radiator hose that the plastic nub/nipple was broken off and embedded within the hose. I managed to pull it out but it doesn't look like it's meant to come out of the radiator, meaning I can't just pull out the rest of the nub and replace it or so I assume. How do I fix this?

I have been told that you have to replace the head bolts when replacing the head gasket because the bolts will stretch. Is this true?


If you change the head bolts that's the safest bet for trouble free operation. But, I've changed head bolts on Hondas for years and they never stretched. I know this is for a Kia. My best guess is that it's not necessary since the Chilton based manuals don't say to do this.

If the head is torqued down to specifications and it leaks, then I would say, otherwise. Even torque is more important than bolt stretch, especially if the bolts don't stretch so much that the head gasket can't be tight against the head and block.
