My old water pump had a metal hose coming out of the heater hose area and my new one does not. How do I get that off. 01 dodge ram

Believe it or not, the only thing holding that in place is a bolt that is mounted to the engine block. The end that is in the water pump only has an O-ring at the end of it. Carefully, turn and pull to get it out. If it gets damaged, you can get a new one at most parts stores for about 15 bucks. Make sure to place a thin coating of coolant on the new o-ring when replacing it.
