Can't provide pictures, but it's not hard to describe. You will need a normal set of metric sockets... a 13mm and a 17mm if I remember correctly. You will also need an adjustable wrench and screwdrivers. Don't forget lots of towels. The power steering pump is the lowest moving part on the engine. It's on the passenger side in front and to the left of the oil pan. It has two lines and a belt running two it.
Remove the rubber hose and drain the fluid ( about 1 qt ). Use your adjustable wrench and take the other line off. This is a banjo fitting with two copper gaskets (don't loose them). There are two bolts on the right of the pump. Loosen those, do not remove the bolts yet. There is another bolt on the left with a second, bigger nut... loosen the smaller nut and use your adjustable wrench to back the PS pump back to get the belt off. Now remove all three bolts and the pump should come off. Reassembly opposite of removal. Before starting the engine, fill the PS fluid tank with 1/2 qt to avoid air bubbles in the system. If the power steering doesn't work, you may need to let it sit several hours to let the bubbles in the fluid pop. Good luck.

Hi if your car is a jetta/bora , in the engine bay by the coolant bottle there will be a black resovoir with a green lid on it this is where the power steering fluid goes but if your car is a late new shape jetta then it doesnt require power steering fluid as it has electric power steering hope this helps

You have to get to it from under the car. Remove the plastic cover piece. There are 5 bolts that need to be loosed to tighten the belt. The bolt at the top of the bracket, the two pivot bolts going into the pump, 1 bolt that is up in the rear bracket of the pump, (bracket bolts to the block) and the bolt that holds the tensioning adjusting bolt on the front of the pump bracket. Turning the long bolt adjusts the position of the pump. All bolts should be 13mm head bolts. The "hidden" bolt on the back bracket xan be reached by using a deep well 13mm socket and a 3 inch extension. The others with a wrench or socket.
