Ok I need HEP!! I’ve spent a good hour and a half searching the forum and the one drive site to no avail, I’m replacing a leaky hydraulic hose, I have the old one out all the way to the pump manifold, I can’t seem to get the old one to “pop” out, it there a special trick or tool for this??? I don’t want to damage the pump or it’s manifold, I’ve tried gingerly using a needle nose plier ... nope, a good solid yank .... nope ..... any help would appreciated. And of course I don’t FIT in that compartment!!!:banghead

It’s hose #62 if that helps!!

Nah I was just stuck as to how the hose came out of the pump .... I had a heck of a time getting to all 3 bolts that hold the manifold to the pump, then getting the O ring and clip on the new hose and the 3 bolts back in ..... I can tell you .... I am bruised from the armpits to the hips!!!:frown2: but it’s done, considering I’ve owned the R for 10 years, this is the first real issue thus far!!! Other than the magnet issue a couple weeks ago!! But that was a walk in the park compared to this!!:wink2:
