You may have to remove some parts and do it properly. You sure you are not a robot?

I believe you are speaking of the hose which has a small bend to it. They are difficult. Having five explorers this is what I do. Place the hose on the thermostat housing first and secure it. Now use some vasoline on the inside of the hole (just a little) and position the hose on the water pump before attaching the housing.
