In a 1993 jeep grand cherokee. Can I just take the mounting bracket off the tube to the block and pull the tube from the water pump--replace the o ring and put it back in? Or do I have to remove the water pump to replace the o ring?

If there is coolant coming out then YES, try blocking the heater hoses,(disconnect at the engine and loop it back to the other heater hose outlet on the engine) this way you can be sure it is leaking.
To many times removing from the heater hose from the heater core inlets will break the inlet tubes.

Spin water pump to be sure that pump impeller does not rub against timing chain case/cover.
Install a new O-ring to the heater hose coolant return tube Coat the new O-ring with antifreeze before installation.
Install coolant return tube and its mounting bolt to engine Be sure the slot in tube bracket is bottomed to mounting bolt. This will properly position return tube.
