Unfortunely you will have to remove the radiator and you might be able to find a radiator shop that could replace the tank that has that on it. Kind of doubtful though, most likely you will have to replace the radiator, around $200.00. That hose must be connected to the radiator so coolant can expand and contract into the overflow bottle.

Try J B Weld, 2 part chemical like epoxy. It works on stuff like this. Buy at K Mart, auto store, etc $5. Worth a try
