Replacing your power steering pump is a relatively easy task with the correct tools. Those being the pulley removal and installation tools, often sold in a kit. You will also need a pair of pliers, and open end wrenches. First remove the drive belt. Place a drain pan under the pump to catch the power steering fluid. Detach the two hoses on the back of the unit, which are the pressure and return lines. Remove top bracket nut which secures the battery ground cable. Then proceed to remove the bracket mounting bolts. Typically a replacement pump will be sold without the pulley. Hence the necessity of the pulley installation and removal tools. You can also save a little by re-using the old reservoir. The installation is just the reverse of the removal. Be sure to replace any o-rings. After mounting the new pump and re-installing the drive belt, fill the reservoir with power steering fluid and bleed the system to remove any air by jacking up the front of the vehicle, start the engine and allow it to run at fast idle, if necessary add more fluid to bring the level of fluid to the cold mark on the dipstick. Begin bleeding the system by turning the wheels side to side without hitting the stops. Keep the reservoir full of fluid as this is done. when all of the air is worked out of the system return wheels to the straight ahead position and allow to run for several minutes more. Road test to insure proper operation of your steering components. Recheck fluid level to be sure it reaches the hot mark when the engine is at normal operating temperature.
