Default What hose is this, and why is it coming loose?

Hi all - I was doing a routine "make sure there isn't a squirrel living in my engine compartment looksee" and noticed, as you'll see below in the following picture, this hose had started to work its way loose. I pushed it back together before taking the picture (I was far away from my camera) but it almost worked itself about 1.5/1.75 inches out!

It went back together with relative ease, but it appears that there is some sort of gunky glue that holds it on there, and it seems to have weakened or something.

It looks like it comes from the radiator - what is it exactly? Also, are their any replacements for it? I have the Samco IC hoses and I like them a lot - do they make one for this thing?

Thanks!

And for reference, I really don't have any engine mods to speak of - Samco IC hoses, removed silencer/snorkus, and K&N drop-in panel filter.

Just looks like extra protection from rubbing on something.

i agree with Codean, nothing to worry about, just some extra padding. every time i open my hood i move that damn thing back where it's supposed to be.

Ahhhh -- so it's not actually 3 separate hoses? That would make sense...
