I believe you have 2 beltson this engine. One for the alternator, a short skinny one. Loosening the alternator bolts and pulling the alternator towards the front of the car, and then tightening the adjusting bolt.
The other belt runs the power steering, a/c compressor and water pump. I think it has an idler pulley with a jack screw adjusting screw. loosen the screw to releive belt tension. good luck

How do i change a power steering pump on a 2004 ford f 150 5.4 4x4

p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; }

Follow this steps

The items you will need include basic hand tools, shop rags, gloves, drip pan, fluid suction gun, power steering pump pulley removal tool, power steering pump pulley installation tool, power steering fluid, and a Haynes manual.

Use a suction gun to remove the power steering fluid.

Position a drip pan under the pump and disconnect the high pressure line and fluid return hose. Cap the ends of the lines.

Loosen the serpentine belt and slip it out of the power steering pump pulley. Replace any worn belts at this time.

Remove the bolts and nuts that hold the pump onto the engine.

Remove the pump. Now remove the pulley from the pump. To do this, use a power steering pump pulley removal tool. If you don't have one, you can rent one from Advance Auto Parts.

Remove the nuts to detach the pump from the brackets.

Reattach the bracket to the new pump. Reinstall the pulley.

Bolt the pump back into place. Slip the belt back onto the pulley and retighten. Reattach the high pressure line and return fluid hose.

Now fill the power steering fluid reservoir until it reaches to the proper level. Now start the vehicle. Recheck the fluid and add if necessary. Turn the wheels left and right a couple of times. So that's it, you are done. Test the vehicle to make sure it functions properly.

I need to replace my 2007 Honda Odyssey Power Sterring Pump? How hard is this and would it be better for me to take it to someone to have it done?

Not that bad to do, loosen nut on center of pulley before removing belt, this way it will hold pulley while loosening nut, after that remove belt, remove both power steering hoses, now remove pulley and both mounting bolt to power steering pump, install new pump in reverse order.

Take fan shroud off with two 8mm bolts on top oe it.
You cant remove untill you remove the clutch fan assembly.
It is left handed thread.
It has to be removed together.
Remove the four bolts to the pulley on front of water pump. and then remove all 14mm bolts around the pump.
Then remove 8mm bolts and it will be able to come off. assemble in reverse order!

Hi, no need to raise the engine. you can use these steps to replace your pump.

To replace the power steering pump, proceed as follows:

1. Disconnect the power steering return hose from the remote reservoir or pump. Allow the fluid to drain from this hose into a drain pan. Discard the used fluid.
2. Loosen the bracket or belt tension adjusting bolt, and the pump mounting bolt.
3. Loosen the belt tension until the belt can be removed. On some cars, it is necessary to lift the vehicle on a hoist and gain access to the power steering pump from underneath the vehicle.
4. Remove the hoses from the pump, and cap the pump fittings and hoses.
5. Remove the belt tension adjusting bolt and the mounting bolt, and remove the pump.
6. Check the pump mounting bolts and bolt holes for wear. Worn bolts must be replaced. If the bolt mounting holes in the pump are worn, pump replacement is necessary.
7. Reverse steps 1 through 5 to install the power steering pump. Tighten the belt as described previously, and tighten the pump mounting and bracket bolts to the manufacturer's specifications. If o-rings are used on the pressure hose, replace the o-rings. Be sure the hoses are not contacting the exhaust manifold, catalytic converter, or exhaust pipe during or after pump replacement.
8. Fill the pump reservoir with the manufacturer's recommended power steering fluid, and bleed air from the power steering system as described earlier.
