Water pump upper pipe removal 00 Windstar 3.8 - SOLVED

2000 Windstar 3.8

Lower pipe from water pump has rusted out. I am replacing it and the water pump while I have all the stuff off. I have instructions for removing the water pump and have completed every step but one. I can not get the upper metal pipe to come out of the water pump. I have removed the hoses from the other side of this pipe and remove the screw at the water pump and the one further on in holding the pipe down. It is just stuck in the water pump. I can turn it a little, but it will not pull out. Any suggestions on how to get it out from the water pump?

It's probably rusted in. Just keep working it. Try spraying WD40 or similar to see if that helps.

I finally removed the water pump with the upper pipe on it. I had to stand on it and pull and turn oh so hard and it finally came out. Thanks for the help. Now I wished I had not moved the camshaft synchronizer. I will have to figure that out now. dlm4ut

Glad you got it out. GooWhat did you move on the camshaft?
