It would be best to drop the engine, but can be done by only removeing 3 of the engine support bolts (only loosen the the one under the drivers seat) when the alternator and bracket is removed and idler bracket is removed you can take all bolts out of the water pump and by prying the engine to the drivers side the water pump will just barley come off.

I just completed this very job it took me about 5hours!! good luck

Cooling system

It's probably a dealer only part, so the dealer should be able to identify it. I would say its a bypass tube or its connected to the heater hose components.
You might be able to repost the question with a video showing the area around the tube and what it connects to.

My Windstar has a pipe that comes out of the water pump and wraps around behind the intake. It has a hole and is leaking. Can this be soldered? What pipe is this?

Heater bypass. cannot be soldered/welded as it is aluminimum and under high heat and constant pressure when vehicle is running.
