I feel your pain on the rust...

Maybe consider taking off the PS pump (not the lines), and just setting it aside out of the way? I'm assuming that the line is attached to the pump, and that if you move the pump, the line will not be in the way anymore. Also assuming that there'* enough flex in the rubber portion of the line to move it around a bit.

that might work, but i would rather take the heater tube off, if i can. ill prob take the ps pump off as last resort.

thank you for the suggestion. it just may come down to that.

Removing the PS pump and swinging it out of the way is common practice. The bolts holding it to the accessory bracket can be accessed through the holes in the pulley of the PS pump itself.
