Just twist off the top of the crimped clamp with a pair of pliers and replace with a small normal hose clamp. Be careful not to twist with too much effort otherwise you may break off the plastic pipe to which the hose is attached.

I appear to have a leak from the small return hose on the top of the radiator that goes to the expansion tank on my 735. The hose does not have a regular clamp, but appears to have a "permanent" crimped on clamp. How do I get this clamp off to check the fitting and/or replace the little hose? TIA, Brian
