Question about 1991 Peugeot 405
Sounds like a typical case of stuck hose to me. Sometimes it helps, if you are replacing the hose, to **** it with a razor blade and peel it off with a screwdriver....welcome to the world of auto repair.

No you can't cut and peel the hose because the end of the hose is fixed into a metal sleeve. dttech is talking about a normal hose connection that is just stuck after the hose clip has been removed. The mild steel sleeve rusts and then you cannot pull the connection apart, of course after first removing the stainless steel circlip. Only solution is to buy the new connector attached to a complete new hose. OR you can cut off the hose close to the metal sleeve and then with a mini grinder carefully remove the rusted end from the radiator without damaging the plastic stub pipe of the radiator. Then ask someone with a lathe to turn up an adapter with an 'O' ring incorporated that will push into the rad stub pipe. Then the slightly shortened original hose will push onto the adapter and secure with a normal hose clip. We have done this using solid nylon stock round bar. Seems to be coping with the temperature and pressure but we are still testing it.
If it proves successful then we may be able to make some more adapters for anyone else.
Even if you buy a new hose you still have to remove the old one in exactly the same way as described.
