I AM HAVING TROUBLE REMOVING THE ENGINE OIL COOLER LINE FROM A 1998 CHEVY BLAZER. THE SPACE IS TOO TIGHT. ANY SUGGESTIONS? I GOT THE LINE ALL LOOSE AND READY TO COME OUT, BUT THERE IS NOT ENOUGH ROOM BETWEEN THE FRAME AND FRONT AXLE.

Do you
have the same problem?

I have the car itself jacked up. The google instructions say to first remove the steering linkage shield. I don't know where that is at and I can't see how it would help me get that part out.
