SOURCE: Support Bracket power steering AUDI 1998 2.8

Any comparable car should work. Your car is a 98, so you would have to stick with Audi/VW cars that have the 30v V6 (98-01.5). The 97 and earlier years used an older 12v V6 and those aren't compatible. It's unlikely that the 1.8T models would work either. You'd have to look for A4, A6, and Passat cars in the model range I mentioned, and you may find that if you have a quattro model, your replacement would have to come from a quattro (Audi) or 4motion (VW) car as well. Try to find a donor car with your same drivetrain (30v V6, auto/stick - whichever you have, and 2wd/4wd, whichever you have).

To tell at a glance which engine is which, the 30v has black covers on the valve covers that say "5V" (for five valves per cylinder). The older 12v cars I believe actually say "12v" on them.

SOURCE: 96 landrover disco power steering pump bracket broken off

Really stupid question but did you get the correct belt and did you adjust the belt tensioner? On vehicles with spring type tensioner it must be pried back and then released. Slide type tensioners are usually either part of the pump bracket or alternator bracket assembly.

According to the manual, the bracket can not be removed, until the pully is removed. You have to insert a screwdriver through one of the pulley holes to hold it, then break the bolts loose. You should be able to get to all the bolts on the bracket now.

SOURCE: I'm trying to remove my oil pan on a 2000

I am not sure, But there could be six more bolts to remove. They will be on the side of the pan, about half way up. three on each side. Sorry for guessing, I work on to many makes and models. Also the gaskets do hold the pan on tight sometimes. If there are no extra bolts then carefully pry it off.

Power steering pump bracket removal on 1997 chyrsler cirrus v6

Hi Dave,

Trying to do a timing belt? Can't figure out how to get to the bolt on the back side of the power steering bracket so you can get it out of the way and get the rear timing cover off?

If this is the case, all I can say is I know your pain!!! Been there, done that, MANY times!

The easiest way that I have found to do this (if you want to call it EASY) is to remove the upper intake plenum and the rear valve cover. Then the bolt can be easilly accessed by reaching over the top of the rear head.

Hint: this is also a good time to replace spark plugs and ignition cables. These engines like to get valve cover leaks that fill the spark plug tubes on the rear head with engine oil, so removing the valve cover and replacing the gasket and spark plug tube seals is a good investment if you are doing a timing belt anyway. Having the valve cover off also makes it very easy to loosen up the cam journal caps and make it easy work to install new camshaft seals also. - this way, hopefully, you won't have to go back in there for a LONG time!

How do you retime a timing belt for a Chrysler Cirrus 1995 V6

Position the number one cylinder at TDC. Take the hot side terminal off. Remove the drivebelts. Loosen the large bolt in the center of the crankshaft pulley/damper. After removing the crankshaft pulley, reinstall the crankshaft bolt using an appropriate priate spacer (this will enable you to turn it later) Remove the upper-left timing belt cover. Remove the lower timing belt cover. Detach the power steering pump bracket from the engine. Remove the right (passenger side) engine mount and the mounting bracket from the engine. Make sure the engine is supported with a floor jack placed under the oil plan. Place a wood block on the jack head to prevent damaging the oil pan. Loosen the timing belt tensioner mounting bolts and then remove the tensioner. Carefully slip the timing belt off the sprockets.This is a good time to check the crank and camshafts for leaks. Make sure your marks are lined up before you put it back together. Best wishes.

I need to know the head bolt torque on 99 gmc 2500 with 6.0 engine

The cylinder head gasket displacement can be verified by markings visible on the top side of the left gasket locating tab. Some 4.8/5.3L head gaskets may have 53 stamped onto the locating tab. Some 6.0L head gaskets may have 60 stamped onto the locating tab.
  1. Install the alternator mounting bracket using the four bolts. Tighten the mounting bracket to the cylinder head bolts to 50 Nm (37 ft. lbs.).
  2. Tighten the bolt at the rear of the power steering pump. Tighten the bolt to 50 Nm (37 ft. lbs.).

Hope helps.

2000 dodge caravan remove mounting assembly to release power steering pump. I have already removed the passenger wheel and wheel well took all the bolts from the pump and all i could find from the...

I have changed the pump out on my wife's 99 Voyager, 3.3 liter. Per my manual (and experence) there should be a nut at the back of the pump connecting it to the bracket. Then there are three (3) bolts which connect the pump to the bracket (front of pump under pulley. I my memory serves part of the front bracket will have to be removed with the pump. Lastly, if a 3.3 or 3.8 V6 you;ll have to remove the exhaust where it connects to the back manifold (has a flex pipe to it. Trust me on this the manual is correct with removing the ehaust from the engine, I tried to prove the engineers wrong but its the only way out and back in. Plan for these four (4) bolts to break and replace with new when putting pump back in, use new exhaust gasket too. To remove/install pulley to pump you'll need a special puller, cheap to by or may be rented.

I hope this may have assited you,

Chrysler Cirrus/Stratus/Sebring/Avenger/Breeze 1995-1998
Power Steering Pump - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Cirrus, Stratus, Sebring Convertible and Breeze
(see Figures 1, 2, 3 and 4)
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the left strut tower. The ground cable is equipped with an insulator grommet, which should be placed on the stud to prevent the negative battery cable from accidentally grounding.
  2. Siphon as much power steering fluid out of the reservoir as possible.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Remove the right front tire and wheel assembly.
  5. Remove the splash shield from the right front wheel well.

Fig. 1: Power steering pressure hose attachment to the pump-with Variable-Assist steering


Fig. 2: Power steering pressure hose attachment to the pump-without Variable-Assist steering
  1. Disconnect the power steering pressure hose from the pump.
  2. Remove the hose connection on the power steering pump.

Fig. 3: Typical power steering pump front bracket attachment
  1. Remove the power steering adjusting bolt.
  2. Remove the power steering pump rear attaching bolt.
  3. If so equipped, remove the Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) hydraulic control unit heat shield.
  4. Remove the wheel speed sensor retainer bracket from the right inner fender.
  5. Remove the wheel speed sensor sealing grommet from the right inner fender.
  6. Disconnect the speed sensor wiring.
  7. Push the wiring through the hole in the inner fender.
If not equipped with anti-lock brakes, the hole will just have a sealing plug.
  1. Remove the bolt attaching the power steering front bracket to the mounting bracket. Access to the bolt is gained through the hole for the speed sensor wiring.
  2. Remove the power steering pump drive belt.
  3. Remove the power steering pump and the front bracket as an assembly.
To install:
  1. Install the power steering pump and bracket.
  2. Reinstall the bolt at the adjusting slot, but do not tighten.
  3. Reinstall the bolt mounting the power steering pump to the rear mounting bracket, but do not tighten.
  4. Reinstall the power steering pump top bolt, but do not tighten.
  5. Reconnect the power steering hoses.

Fig. 4: Install a new O-ring gasket on the hose fitting
Use a new O-ring when reinstalling the power steering pressure hose.
  1. Reinstall the drive belt.
  2. Adjust the drive belt and tighten the power steering pump bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
  3. Reinstall the splash shield.
  4. Reinstall the tire and wheel assembly.
  5. Lower the vehicle.
  6. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
  7. Refill the reservoir and bleed the power steering system.

Sebring Coupe and Avenger
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove (drain, suction pump, etc.) as much power steering fluid as possible.
  3. Disconnect the return fluid line. Remove the reservoir cap and allow the return line to drain the fluid from the reservoir. If the fluid is contaminated, disconnect the ignition high tension cable and crank the engine several times to drain the fluid from the gearbox.
Cover any components located underneath the power steering pump with a shop towel to protect them from damage due to power steering fluid spillage. For example, the A/C compressor or alternator, depending on vehicle and engine, is below the power steering pump, so cover the A/C compressor or alternator with a shop towel before removing any hoses.
  1. Loosen (but do not remove) the power steering pump mounting bolts and remove the drive belt.
  2. Remove the pressure switch connector from the side of the pump.
  3. Disconnect the pressure line.
  4. Unbolt and remove the pump from the mounting bracket.
To install:
  1. Clean all parts well. Inspect the pump pulley for cracks. Check the hoses carefully for cracks or signs of weakness.
  2. Install the pump, wrap the belt around the pulley and lightly tighten the mounting bolts.
  3. Replace the O-rings and connect the pressure line. Connect the pressure line so the notch in the fitting aligns and contacts the pump's guide bracket. Tighten the fitting to 13 ft. lbs. (18 Nm).
  4. Connect the return line and secure with the clamp.
  5. Fasten the pressure switch connector.
  6. Adjust the power steering belt for proper tension and tighten the adjusting bolts.
Use only MOPAR ATF PLUS automatic transmission fluid type 7176, ATF+3 automatic transmission fluid, or equivalent, in the power steering system of Sebring coupe and Avenger models.
  1. Refill the reservoir and bleed the power steering system.

Hope this help to solve it (remember comment and rated this). TY for using Fixya.
