Sorry to dredge this post up, but I have a similar problem with a twist.
Ford changed the port size somewhere around 2010, making it smaller, and my 2006 model can't fix into the new pump.
I need to get the pipe off so that I can have the screw fixing on the pump side replaced, but it's fixing on the other end is behind the engine, below the steering column, and above the steering rack. In short, impossible to remove unless you know a trick (which I apparently don't).
Is it possible to cut the pipe at a rubber section and join it with a sleeve and hose clamps? Or is the pressure just too great? Alternatively, is there some way of getting the pipe off which I am oblivious to?
