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.

Begin by loosening the tensioner pulley on the front of your 1996 Nissan Maxima engine. Slide the tensioner pulley to the right. The old power steering belt will become loose and can be removed. Put the new power steering belt on. Tighten the power steering belt by sliding the tensioner pulley to the left.

The adjusting pulley for the power steering is found on the side of the engine under the power steering pump. Loosen the bolt that keeps it tight and the belt will have some slack to slide off the pulley.

Yes. you will have to replace the manual steering box with a power steering box, install a power steering pump and lines and possibly a main pulley on the crank to run the belt for the power steering pump if your car doesn't have the right pulley.

You will need to buy or rent or borrow a power steering pulley puller. Trying to remove and replace the pulley without the correct puller will surely damage the pulley and or the pump.

That is not a Allen screw in there. That is part of the pump shaft. If you are looking to remove the pump pulley you will need a power steering pulley puller. This tool will help you remove it and replace it, without the puller you will damage the pulley or the pump or both.

The power steering pump is located on the front of the engine. The pump is on the lower part of the engine and will have a pulley on front and has a fill cap on top.

Not knowing what vehicle you have I can tell you that most power steering pumps require a special puller to remove the pulley off the pump and install the pulley without damaging pump or pulley. This puller can be rented or purchased from most auto parts stores.

A power steering pump is an essential part of the steering mechanism of your car. This is run directly from the engine (via a pulley system) and provides the hydraulic power for the steering system.

I believe you are referring to the power steering pulley. The tensioner pulley is a different system altogether. You must, however, locate the tensioner pulley to remove the belt before you remove the power steering pulley.The tensioner pulley should be generally easy to access from the top of the engine bay. It is the only pulley that should be attached to an arm that is mounted somewhere close on the block. (with the engine running at idle, look for the pulley that appears to be bouncing up and down). Turn the engine off before next steps...Use a tensioner tool to move the tensioner pulley away from the belt. With tension removed from the belt, the belt should slide off of the pulleys. With the belt now removed, you will loosen the bolt that holds the power steering pulley in place.(Power steering pulley is located on the power steering gear box, locate this by finding the power steering fluid reservoir. The reservoir should sit directly above the gear box).Once the bolt is removed, the pulley should come off the shaft (with some force). You may have to use a pulley puller tool if it does not come off by hand.Installation is reverse of removal. Good luck.

To change a power steering belt on a Rover 214, unbolt the power steering pump and pry the belt off the pulley. Replace with another steering belt and reinstall the steering pump.
