Having trouble removing front pump on CD4E transmission after removed bolts while still in the car, any ideas? Pull

I'm trying to replace the 2 4 band without taking the whole transmission out. The pump won't come off, do I need a special puller?

Can't say about that model exactly, but many transmission hydraulic pumps have a couple of recessed bolt holes for a puller to fit on to pull the pump, so I suspect that is the issue - I do know prying between the transmission housing and the pump will bend the shaft and can ruin the pump and transmission - had a neighbor try that and find out the hard way.

If you google this search phrase -

remove front pump on CD4E transmission

you will find several videos on that removal - also a couple of blogs with responses by mechanics on the pump and band removal/replacement procedure. Appears to depend on car model - some said it can be done on the car, with other models apparently part of the frame interferes and the transmission has to be removed to remove the front pump.
