Default Power steering pump pulley change

Locate your power steering pump pulley.

Now let the tension off the belt.

You will need a 13mm wrench, loosen the 2 bolts holding the pump on. One is located at about 12:00 and the other is about 6:00.

Remove the supply and return lines from the power steering pump. Now remove the pump from the car and place on a clean bench.

You will need a power steering pump pulley puller, you can find these at a local auto supply store.

Place the clamps on the pulley like this.

Then place the holding ring over the clamps.

And begin tightening. The pulley will pop a little when it brakes loose.

And remove the pulley.

To reinstall, place the new pulley on the pump, or the old pulley on the new pump.

And tighten down until the pulley is flush with the shaft.

Reverse procedure to reinstall pump in car.

Fill with new fluid, do not reuse the old fluid.

Start engine and let idle.

Turn wheel a few times to purge out air. Do not turn wheel to the stops. Check level again.
