Help!! How do I replace my thermostat - 97 e420?

Help!! I started on this job figuring it didn't look too bad, but am now stuck. I can't figure out how to reach the rear bolt on the thermostat, and even if I can reach it I don't know if I can remove the thermostat since I'm having no luck getting the thermostat hose removed fromt the top of the water pump.
Any advice on 1) how to remove the hose and 2) how to reach the rear bolt? It looks like if I can get the hose off the MAYBE I'll be able to get to the bolt.
Please help - I'd hate to get this far and just have to put everythoing back together again (if I can!), but I need to be able to use my car!

Hoses that have been on for 9 years can be very tough to twist loose. If time is not a factor, now might be a great time to replace your radiator hoses. That way you could cut the old one off.
