Advice needed!

While trying to get to the bypass hose I think I may have cracked a heater line at the water pump. The metal line circled is where there is movement. It can move around a little bit. Is this normal or did I bust the damn thing??

If it's not leaking now, I'm betting it soon will be. Looks like it lost the rust battle.

When the bracket is unbolted as yours is, yes, it will move a little. The tube just slips into the hole on the water pump and is sealed with an o-ring.

You don't have to pull the water pump to change it. As you have it in the picture the only thing you have to do is disconnect the hose and just pull the tube out. A replacement in the "Help" section at a parts store is $12-15. It looks nasty, but I've seen 'em a lot worse looking that worked just fine.
