Ask dealership if pulleys are intechangable with your model/year/engine. call junk yard, someone might have dumped a new pulley. try a slide hammer at the junk yard. you need a straight pulley if you want belt to stay on without premature wearing. add some P.B. Blaster to stuck parts to try and help you break them loose. .

    i would look on olds forums for pulley/motor compatibility if you get nothing out of dealers...if you have to reuse pulley use heat to bend it back into shape after you get it off. then cool it with water repeat 3 times to strengthen pulley. do not heat up your power steering pump, seals, or bearings. only pulley. good luck with that.

Power steering fluid leaking on 2002 pontiac grand prix


OK you know the problem but is it something as simple as replacing the Power steering hose or as complicated as also needing a new power steering pump also? Look at where its leaking to determine what needs replacing. Remember it just takes a little time to determine where its leaking. If you find that its not the hose leaking but its the power steering pump then follow these easy steps and save $100s doing it yourself:
1 Remove the negative battery cable with a wrench and place it aside. Remove the upper strut housing tie bar if necessary for access. Remove the power steering serpentine drive belt and electrical plug on the TFE off as applicable. Remove the lower bolt from the mounting bracket using a socket and ratchet if necessary for access. Take off the inlet and outlet hoses from the power steering pump. Remove the reservoir hose only on the supercharged engine. You will need a flat-head screwdriver for this task.
2 Place the power steering pump pulley so the bolts can be accessed through the hole in it. Remove the mounting bolts, using a socket and ratchet, through the hole in the pulley. Take the power-steering assembly out from the bracket. If necessary transfer the pulley to the new pump with a pulley puller.
3 Replace the power steering pulley assembly before you install the pump using the pulley-install tool from your kit. Start the power steering inlet hose connection to the pump by hand. Replace the power steering pump assembly to the engine. Replace the lower bolt first, making sure the hose and heater pipe have enough clearance so they do not touch. If the two rub together they will make noise after the installation is finished. Replace the outlet hose to the pump, directing the hose under the engine harness and the heater hose. If the engine is supercharged it will be necessary to connect the hose from the reservoir.
4 Torque the power steering gear inlet hose to 20 foot-pounds and the hose clamp at the pump to 15 inch-pounds. Torque the pump mounting bolts to 20 foot-pounds. If equipped with a TFE pump, attach the connection. Replace the power steering drive belt or serpentine belt if you removed either. Replace the upper strut tie bar and torque the nuts to 18 foot-pounds. Replace the negative battery cable and fill the power steering reservoir with fluid. Bleed the steering system by starting the engine and turning the steering wheel right and left until all the air is out.

How do you remove the pulley from a power steering pump on a 2003 Kia Spectra


You need a power steering pulley puller kit. Autozone has them for "rent", meaning you pay a deposit and get it back when you return it.
You cannot use a conventional puller, as the pulley will bend or break from them. You need a puller that secures the center of the pulley. If you don't have an Autozone close, check with your local Auto parts store - they may even change the pulley free if you buy the pump from them!

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.

How to remove pully from powersteering pump?


You need a power steering pulley puller. This is about the least expensive one that you will find:

Be careful not the bend the pulley as they are $100-200 for a replacement! Soak the center shaft with a quality penetrating oil like Kroil or PB Blaster for a day or two before.

Replacing water pump on 2002 buick regal gs 1 bolt is behind pulley for steering pump how do i remove the pully


I haven't worked on the newer buicks but I play with alot of chevrolets and depending on the setup it maybe easier to pull the power steering pump bolts and lay it off to the side than it will be to pull the pulley of and press it back on. If you want to pull the pulley you will need a universal pulley puller available at most part stores, if the pulley has bolts in it you will remove the bolts and the puller will have bolts that will slide into the existing holes allowing you to remove the pulley.

Removing the steering pump pulley


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.
