Finally got fed up with that old power steering pump. What a whiner!!! Picked up a new (remanufactured) pump at Auto Zone for $60.00 and went to work. If you want to tackle a pump replacement you will need a 13 mm socket and a short extension to remove the 2 mounting bolts and a 16 mm flare nut wrench to remove the steel pressure line fitting from the pump. There is also a rubber low pressure return hose that can be removed with pliers.
Remove the serpentine belt from the power steering pump pulley. The first picture is a top view of the pump pulley with the belt removed.
Lift the car, support with jack stands and remove the front right tire. Remove the plastic fender liner to gain access to the pump from under the fender well. Next picture is a view above the brake rotor looking through the fender. Red arrow shows the power steering pump. Blue arrow shows crank shaft pulley.
Using a 16 mm flare nut wrench or open end wrench remove steel flared line. (Blue arrow) Green arrow shows open hole in pump housing where line was removed. At red arrow, squeeze hose clamp with pliers and remove hose from barb. Better have a catch pan handy when you remove the lines.
Rotate pump pulley to gain access to 13 mm mounting bolt heads through larger holes in pulley face. I had pretty good luck removing the upper bolt working from the top of the engine and then removed the lower bolt working through the fender well.
Next picture shows the pump with all bolts and lines removed and ready to be lifted out from the top.
I used a 3 legged puller to remove the pulley from the old pump. Not sure if this is the official tool for the job but hey, I'm not Mr. Goodwrench.
Now we have the pulley removed. The red arrows show the mounting holes in the pump body where the 13 mm bolts pass through to the tapped holes in the block.
Now the pulley is installed on the new pump and it'* ready to find a new home on my Bonnie.
This shows the 13 mm bolt head lined up with the hole in the pulley face. This shows a little better view of the mounting bolts that were removed earlier.
Old pump is back in the plastic bag and ready for a ride to town so I can get my $22.00 core charge back.
