Has anyone successfully removed a Water pump from a 4 cyl Escape? I have the 3 bolts out and it seems to be seized in the cavity.  I want to make sure that I dont break anything. Pictures would help. Thanks.

I hope there are only 3 bolts to remove. It's hard to find specific information for a 2010 4Cyl Escape but from what I can see from looking at replacement parts , there are only 3 bolts.

I will answer my own question in case it helps someone else. There are only 3 bolts. The pump housing was seized inside the cavity that it sits inside. I got it out by putting a pipe wrench onto it, sliding a metal pipe over the end of the wrench and then reefing on it, back and forth. Eventually it started to move. Once I had done that for a while so that it would spin in the cavity I jerked the handle (over and over) in the direction needed for the pump to come out of the cavity. It took a lot of persistence, a lot of penetrating oil and I guess some luck but eventually it came out. Btw I totally ruined the casing, snapped a few pieces off too, but I didn't care since I was replacing it.
