There's a bolt that holds the coolant pipe to the back of the block & 2 studs or bolts that hold it to the oil pan.

Remove the above fasteners & give a good yank on the coolant pipe. It'll come out of the water pump & you'll get a nice antifreeze shower.

Make sure you install a new o-ring on the end of the coolant pipe before you install it on the new water pump.
