Working from underneath the vehicle, after jacking it up, you need to remove the two pipes running into the power steering pump. One of which requires an 18mm open-end wrench as I found out... You'll need a drain pan to catch the leaking fluid. It may also be easier to remove the radiator prior to give you a little more space to work. I suggest getting a Repair Manual available at most Autozone stores, typically under $20. They cover the whole vehicle in detail... mine is falling apart I've used it so much. Also some info is on the AutoZone website.

. Oh, and don't buy a pump from Advance... mine failed after 2 months... NOT HAPPY!!!
