Don't use a standard bearing puller it doesn't work and may damage the pulley. I went to a local parts store "Salvo" and they had a Ford Power Steering Pump Pulley puller. It works. It seems like you have to put as so much force into it that something would break, but no, it just starts to come off, worth all of the 17.00 I put into it.

Try using a very small spray of silicone spray on the belt next time you're hearing the squeal. If it temporarily stops, replace the belt. Check the p/s fluid level, if it's low it could cause the pump to make noise. Also if it's low, you have a leak, check all lines, connections and pull back the bellows boots on the p/s rack (if rack and pinion). Finally, pick yourself up a mechanic's stethescope, good tool for diagnosing accesory noises. Listen to all components while duplicating the noise.

rack and-or pinion... Good thing the 98 is a very good and popular windstar, its not as bad as it sounds.

chances are that noise is the ball joints telling you they are dry and have no grease and they should be replaces fairly soon

UNLESS U KNOW HOW TO DISARM THE AIRBAG DON'T FOOL WITH IT, IT CAN INJURE YOU IF IT GOES OFF! I ALSO THINK YOU HAVE A DEFECTIVE STEERING RACK ASSMEBLY, THIS IS THE CAUSE OF THE HARD STEERING EFFORT, HAVE BEEN A FORD DEALER TECH FOR 30 YEARS KNOW THIS CAR VERY WELL. ANY FRONT END SHOP (LIKE TIRE STORES) WILL CHECK THIS OUT FOR FREE AND GIVE U AN ESTIMATE TO REPAIR THE RACK.
