I don't know exactly how the pump comes out of the holder, but if you are saying the black tube is the only thing which is really holding it in, just cut it. You'll get a new hose with your new pump. The pump I just looked at had it in the parts kit. Comes with two hose clamps which connect both ends for you. You'll also get a new strainer for the bottom, so ...

From what it sounds like the light is showing after the glow plugs are hot and Ready glow plugs take around 15-30 seconds to warm up and if you are turning it over and over without them hot 1. It will not start 2. You are going to throw codes. How long do you wait to start turning over the engine after you turn the key on? On a car in cold weather you should ...
