Default Water Pump Problems (1/2 Way taken out)

Well here I am with all the necessary bolts taken out and have read the how to replace a water pump on a 94 SSEI. Everything is done except those hard coolant lines that go to the heater core. I read that these coolant lines are held in with an o-ring, but I can pull all day and they wonít come off. This is what is keeping me from undoing the accessory bracket on the car to get the last water pump bolt out.

Here is a picture of the hard lines that I need taken off.

Can anybody help me with some information on this? I need to get this done by Sunday afternoon because I need to drive to work on Monday.

Thanks, Erik

Oh and the Car is a 1994 Bonneville SSEI

P.*. I even have the accessory bracket loose ití* just that the pipes are in the way of moving the bracket...

Thanks,

That rusty thing in the center of the two lines is a bolt that holds the brackets on.. if you remove it.. then they should wiggle and come out.

It ended up that they were just way too rusted in there. The bolt was out but they were seized solid in there. I just ended up basically bending the crap out of them and then they came off. Good thing I have a parts car with perfect ones on there

Thanks, Erik
