    I am really hoping you may be able to help..I have a badly leaking vacuum pump and today tried to remove it
    we not so easy..the transmission electronic gear selector is in the way.. this is an automatic 06 model or05.5
    the only thing I can think off is removing the coolant pipe that runs over top of the pump and maybe I can squeeze it out..there is no way to remove the gear selector stud unless the trans is removed..please help if you are able..the intake manifold would need to be removed to remove this coolant pipe

    any help would be greatly appreciated..I am a former Toyota mechanic
    2.5 auto
