Does anyone know how to remove the steel hose or pipe that goes into the power steering pump? I'm having trouble taking off the fitting that is on the end of the pipe. I have the new unit but I don't want to just unbolt the old pipe and just screw that into the new one as the seal on the old one is broken. Thanks in advance

I was going to say if you had it out you can use air gun to take out that bolt you needed out easily. And that noise is a lot of air in your system. Just gotta make sure it's full of fluid and keep turnning wheel

No that thing is way too tight on there. Here is a photo of the part that's giving me so much trouble. The new unit has this thing in it already all I need to do is take out the high pressure line and pop it into the new unit but unfortunately that's easier said than done. Also I think my old pump has seen its last days because I've been turning the wheel now for about 20 min and it's still making that noise.

I would be replacing the high pressure hose with the pump, then bleed the system of air.

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?

Parts are usually changed like that to fix issues that arise after a few years of being on the road. You should never cut/splice a high side (Pressure side) powers steering hose. I would advise to find the correct parts for you vehicle
