Will a power steering pump still work with only two screws holding it the bolt to the alternator is broke to the braket?
only 2 bolts holding pump is likely to allow pump to move,and cause bearings to wear,or belts to to wear and break,
[ADDED] Whether the steering pump still works, a fault like that, affecting both the steering and the electrical systems, needs immediate attention.
It depends if you want to adjust the belt that does the a/c and power steering, or the one to the alternator. The power steering goes this way. First loosen the hex screw running through the power steering pump bracket. Then loosen the bracket hex screw that attaches to the belt tensioner bolt under the power steering pump. Then, tighten the tensioner hex screw that runs through the tensioner bracket. After you finish the adjustment…
A 1974 VW has an alternator, and it's pretty easy to change: buy a rebuilt one unhook the battery remove the carb, hood and fan belt unhook the wires going to the alternator, and the strap holding it to the alternator stand remove all the screws holding the fan shroud on and lift the fan shroud out of the car there is a nut on the front holding the fan on, and a nut on…
The ignition switch is located on the bottom of the steering column on the top of the steering shaft the side closest to the dash board. First you have to disconnect the 4 bolts holding the support plate that holds the steering column. Then pull the steering column down as far as it will go. Then you disconnect the 4 screws holding the ignition switch. Take off the old one and replace it with the…
Do you need to take off the steering wheel to change the turn signal switch on your Nissan Altima 2001 SE?
no you don't have to. you will need to remove the top steering colum cover and bring down the bottom one just a bit. there are 4 screws holding it together. remove those, separate the covers. now just remove the 2 small screws holding the switch in, slide the switch out and disconnect the connectors.
Been there,done that....I would suspect the combination switch there on the steering column. Repair manuals say to remove the steering wheel, but you dont have to remove it.Just unscrew and remove the tilt knob, the 3 screws holding the column covers,remove the covers, and then you can get to the screws holding on the switch. It is a part you can get a autozone(around $50) so dont go to the "stealership".
You need to get a special tool, steering wheel puller. If you have it, disconnect the battery. Remove the steering wheel air bag (there are two screws holding it in place). Disconnect the bag harness. Remove the center steering wheel nut. Using the puller remove the steering wheel. Installation is reversed to removal.
Replacing the turn signal switch involves replacing the entire turn signal assembly. Remove the screws from the steering column cover to remove the top of the steering column. You can take off the bottom (I was able to work around it). There are only a few screws holding the turn signal assembly. Remove the screws and unfasten the electrical connectors.
you have 3 screw in the lower plastic steering wheel cover - star head screws. Undo the screws and snap the upper case off. There are 2 torx screws holding the switch to the steering column. Undo the screws and pop off the 2 wire harnesses. Should take less than 10 minutes. switches can be found at Napa Auto - approx $87 plus tax. Good luck
