The piece you are referring to is just pressed in from the factory. Sometimes they do come out of the tank/case. Here's how you fix it;

Drain the oil from the tank.

Hemove the elbow from the hose and clean the end that presses in the tank with some Scotchbrite or steel wool. Clean the entire elbow inside and out with brake parts cleaner and a clean rag.

Using some Q-Tips or cotton swabs, clean the inside of the hole in the tank with brake parts clearner. Make sure there is no oil residue inside the hole.

Use some JB weld and apply a small ammount to the elbow and inside the hole and press the elbow in. Tap it lightly with a small hammer to seat it (make sure it's pointed in the right direction).

Let it sit for 24 hours and reassemble.
