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?
