CHANGING THE THERMOSTAT

1997 Pontiac Grand Am

Engine Cooling problem
1997 Pontiac Grand Am 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual

My thermostat is leaking coolant. I want to change it myself. I know where the thermostat is located and know that I should only remove one bolt and just loosen the other. However, there is a metal line (not sure what it is) that appears to be firmly in place that runs from the housing. My question is: Should I remove this line? If so, how?
