My 1998 dodge dakota is leaking coolant from one of the heater hose fittings on the water pump. This tube is connected to a bracket connected to the engine. When I wiggle the hose the bracket moves and coolant leaks out. Do I have to change the water pump to fix this or can I replace the hose tube going into the water pump?

You can change just the pipe. Make sure you use a new o-ring on the end of it, lubricated with coolant before you install it.
