How to remove my power steering pump


hope this one help http://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/how-to/maintenance/3322636
This instructable is designed into four main parts. Here's the outline:

1) Gather the materials
-- Instructable step 1 - This includes tools, a new pump, fluids, etc.
2) Remove the leaking pump
-- Instructable step 2 - Drain the Power Steering system
-- Instructable step 3 - Remove accessories from Power Steering system
-- Instructable step 4 - Remove the pulley and bolts
-- Instructable step 5 - Remove power steering pump
3) Install the new pump
-- Instructable step 6 - Place the new power steering pump
-- Instructable step 7 - Press on the power steering pump pulley
-- Instructable step 8 - Align the pulley and attach the belts
-- Instructable step 9 - Flush and fill the power steering system
4) Cleanup
-- Instructable step 10 - Cleanup

You'll need some tools to complete this task. Before you start, gather the necessary equipment -- you will not be able to use the car once you start the replacement! It is always a good idea to have a friend on call, or a second car available.

Equipment list:

  • Power Steering pump (to replace defective pump)
  • Two (2) quarts power steering fluid or appropriate ATF (to flush and fill). More than 2 quarts if flushing the rack is desired.
  • Power Steering Pulley Puller set (to remove and attach the pulley). Some auto parts stores will loan the tool sets.
  • Socket set.
  • Open end wrench set (for use with puller set).
  • Leverage pipe or extension bar (in case the pulley is hardened on the spindle).
  • Drain pan (to drain & flush power steering system).
  • Wheel bearing grease for sliding pulley on the pump hub.
  • 2' wood 1x2 for assistance with aligning the pulleys. Any straight tool will work fine -- a level, metal rod, wood, whatever.

Power steering belt needs to be replaced and tightened, how do i do it?


The belt is changed by loosening the power steering pump at the adjustment bolt and also the pivot bolt: The following instructions tell you how to remove the whole power steering pump, but you just have to adjust the tension with it.

A long pry bar might help to tighten the tension until there is like 1/2" to 3/4" deflection in the middle of the belt between two pulleys, and when running there doesn't appear to be a lot of play in the appearance of the belt while the pulleys are rotating, and that when the steering wheel is turned, you don't hear any squealing indicating a slipping of the drive belt.

Good luck on this repair:


Power Steering Pump REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Remove the hoses at the pump and tape the openings shut to prevent leakage.
  2. Remove the pump drive belt.
  3. Remove the retaining bolts, any braces and the pump.
  4. If a new pump is being installed, and the pulley is being transferred, a puller is necessary to remove the pulley. To install:
  5. Torque hose fittings to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm). Fill the reservoir with approved power steering fluid and turn the pump backward (counterclockwise as viewed from in front) until bubbles no longer appear in the reservoir.
  6. Any time the pump is removed, air must be bled from the system upon reinstallation. Bleed the system as described in the next procedure. Fig. 1: Exploded view of the power steering pump assembly 85848076.gif

I am trying to use a puller to pull the pulley off of a power steering pump but no matter what brand or kind they always slip right off.


There is a specially made puller that is used to remove and install these pulleys. It is a multi-part puller that has a two part holding fixture that grabs onto the nose of the pulley and is held there with a metal sleeve that slides over it. Once it is on there is a center bolt and nut that you turn to pull the pressed-in-place pulley off of the shaft. The tool also is used to press the pulley back onto the shaft. Some parts stores will rent you this puller but they aren't very expensive if you have to buy one. These pulleys are on there pretty tight as it's just friction that keeps them in place. MAKE SURE you note how far the original pulley is pressed onto the shaft so you get it pressed back to that same spot when you are done otherwise you can end up with a belt that won't track straight, derails, or is noisy. Good luck, hope this helps!

How do you remove the timing belt cover on a 1995 VW Golf.


What is needed Tools: 6mm and 8mm allen wrench socket, 5mm allen wrench. 8mm, 13mm, 19mm socket and ratchet. 10mm combination wrench. Long ratchet extensions (at least one 6in, more are helpful). 5inch Wheel puller (for main shaft pulley). (Some models may need a special spanner tool to adjust the timing belt tensioner) Parts: 2 gal of anti-freeze mixed with distilled water. All three V-belts. (Alt, A/C, P/S) $32.95 New water pump top. $91.91 New gasket for WP. $9.13 New timing belt. $26.13.


Procedure:

Remove battery cable (either power (+) or ground (-)) remove alternator remove A/C remove power steering pump .Remove water pump pulleys remove main shaft pulleys remove timing belt covers remove A/C mounting hardware remove timing belt (don't turn any of the wheels its connected to) replace timing belt adjust belt tension remove water pump face put on new gasket and new part.

Leave pulleys off. replace bottom timing belt cover, replace crank shaft pulley, replace steering pump, replace A/C, put small belt on A/C (hang loose) put large belt around A/C, Main and water pump pulley. put middle size belt on Main water pump and power steering pump reattach bolts for the steering pump pulleys put alternator back on adjust all belts. connect battery

Problem areas:
Main pulley: There are 4 6mm hex head bolts. These must be removed. The main 19mm hex head can be used to turn the engine it the timing belt slips and you have to readjust the timing.

Putting on new belts: This can be a real pain if you get VW belts. The adjustments won't give enough to put the belts over the edge so the easy way is to remove the pulley on the water pump. Then its real easy.

Timing: If you turn the wheels that the timing belt goes on you will have to reset the timing. Mark the timing points with something like whiteout so its easy to see. The timing mark on the toothed gears are small dots. The timing mark for the crankshaft is a small cut on the outer pulley. When its aligned with the intermediate wheel timing mark (there is an arrow on the cover as a hint) should intersect as viewed from the right wheel well. The camshaft timing mark should line up with the top of the engine near the front.

Power steering pump: It is held on with lots of bolts. One is in a channel that is hard to see but can be found with a 6" extension. If you look at the pump you will see three bolts that go into the housing. This should give you an idea where the forth is.
