First, remove the ps belt by loosing the adjustment bolts, then remove the hoses from behind it, then unbolt the bracket from the engine that the pump sits in. I believe that there are three bolts that do this. One off of the exhaust manifold, one on top and one underneath. Once you have gotten pump off of the motor you need to remove the pulley from the pump. KD tools make a great tool for this, part # KD 2897, about 60 bucks at napa. Follow the directions with the tool to remove the pulley and to replace it on the new one. New pumps don't come with the pulley and can be bought with the resevior. The pulley has to come off to get the pump out of the mounting bracket.

vladkov your an idiot power steering systems run on hydraulic power. The pump is driven by the engine with forces fluid through the gear and assists your steering efforts. I have changed my steering gear twice and my pump. There's nothin electronic about it. Steering assist is electronic and thats a whole diifferent ball game, it only comes on newer vehicles. Changing a p/s pump on a 98 chev is pretty simple, you just need a puller to pull the pulley off so you can get at the mounting bolts. Take those and your 2 lines off (making sure to mark which one goes where) and that's pretty much it.

1. Remove serpentine belt
2. loosen power steering pressure and return hoses
3. Remove nut from pressure line mounting on alternator bracket
4. remove power steering pump mounting bolts.
5. Lift pump assembly from engine mounting and remove hoses.
6. Reverse order to install. Fill and bleed system.
NOTE: A new or rebuilt power steering pump will most likely not come with a pulley attached. You will need a power steering pulley remover/installer tool to transfer the pully from the old pump to the new one.
