Sorry...I cannot understand your post. Isn't it possible to remove the silver metal pipe after removing the bolts with the collar?
Is it stuck in there? I have seen this thing many times in my car and even have a very little leak at the same place? I always thought it's just to pull off after removing collar?
ATT: I am asking! Don't go ripping it apart because of this reply.
It would be very kind of you if you could post some kind of description on the work when you get it fixed.
Edit: I did just take a look in my hayes manual. I presume you've already flushed the system AND the heat core. After that it should be just to remove the bolts and collar and pull the pipe away from the core. After that it you swap the o-ring or gasket and put it back together, right?!
