Help me identify this fixture

Hey everyone, could use your help on this..

My coolant system is leaking big-time..... I've consulted my Bentley manual and I can't figure out what the part name is... the plastic part of the housing the circled hose attaches to has broken off inside that end-piece of the hose, the hose pops off and coolant sprays EVERYWHERE (evidenced by the white reside all over the place) after running for a few minutes. I'd like to know what the part / assembly is that the circled hose hose attaches to. Your help is appreciated! :)

Looks like it just might be the Aux Water Pump thats attached to the Heat Valve. I removed mine.

Aux water pump.
Just remove it (unless you live in Siberia and spend a lot of time idling).

Thanks for the info guys! How did you go about attaching the two hoses together?

I just used the hoses that are there. Take a look at the picture in this thread I removed the blue hose and attached the red hose on the pump directly to the valves.
