there is a special tool that presses the pully on. some part stores will let you borrow or rent one. a bolt and washer threaded into the center shaft will also work.

If you mean the power steering pump pulley, then rent a power steering pump pulley puller tool from Autozone. It does not screw off, the pulley is pressed onto the shaft.

Worn steering rack? Bad power steering pump? Low P.S. fluid? Worn steering components? Low tire pressure?

The pulley needs to be removed before you can extract the pump, you can get the pulley removal tool at a car parts store.

You will need a special tool to pull the pulley off the shaft. Some parts stores will lend you the tool, free of charge. Thank you. I had to rent the 'pulley puller', and remove the pulley prior to removing the power steering pump. Then replace the pump on the car and use the pulley tool to press the pulley back on to the pump shaft. There was not much room to work, even with the fan shroud loosened, but eventually I got it off and on. Again, thanks for the help.

I checked Chilton's and Haynes manuals and they both say to use Type F Automatic transmission fluid for the power steering.

n way around it you have to pull the radiator to get the puller on the pulley

Your power steering works by a pulley driven by a belt. The belt gets old and starts to get worn out. When it is almost worn out it no longer grips the pulley. You need to change the belt before it breaks.

You need a special pulley removal tool. And you will also need a special tool to reinstall the pulley. You might be able to buy one at your local parts store.

You have to have a puller that fits on the groove just behind the front edge of the pulley.

Use a power steering pulley puller to remove the pulley. This special purpose tool should cost about $8. Remove the three bolts. Be happy you thought to ask this question.
