cps problems

I just put a new cps in my truck about two weeks ago and last night it started acting up again. I pulled the codes and they are for the cps. I called Napa because that is where I got it from and they said that they will not refund my money because it has been "used". When I replaced it the first time I had no problems getting the old one out but this time I can't seem to get it out I allready went to an International dealer and got a new one to put in. I was wondering if there are any tricks to getting the old one out? I need to get this changed as soon as possible and to make it worse the high temps here are only about 5 or so, after about ten minutes of messing with these I have to go inside to warm up. Any help would be appreciated.

Also one more thing is it possible that they sold me the wrong one?

your CPS is one of the things that is SO IMPORTANT that you should get it only from the dealer cuz chances are the dealer won't give you the wrong part. years ago i bought a thermostat from Kragens and then went to a mechanic to have it changed out. the mechanic said that if i had use the kragen one, i would've lost my engine. i now go to the dealer to get that particular item.

as to how to change out this one, you got me.

I have read that the internatial ones are just as good if not better than the ones from Ford, and it was cheaper so I figured that I would give it a try.

I could really use some help here, I got to be at work in about two hours and that is where the truck is at now, hopefully I can have fixed by the morning.

I had some trouble with mine too. Just try twisting it untill you can get it far enough out to stick a screwdriver behind it and work from side to side. Maybe a little penatrant around it while you try to turn it. Hope you get it ! Stay warm! Later

I finally got it changed today. When I was trying to pry it out the metal bracket broke, so I ended up putting vice grips on the front and was able to pull it sideways enough toget a screwdriver in there. Thanks for all the help, this is the second time I have changed it (first time it came out with no problem) and hopefully it will be the last.
