SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: removing power steering 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.

SOURCE: Can't remove water pump from 2007 Dodge Grand -

you must undo the three pully bolts turn the pully so it slips behind the mounting flange , then you should be able to wiggle it out , if it still hangs on frame you a long pry bar and push between frame and crankshaft bolt just hard enough to move engine slightly, this will definitly work and repeat to install. PS use a little RTV silicon to hold seal on new pump.

SOURCE: Water pump removal on a 1996 Buick Riviera (supercharged)

there are two bolts that hold the power steering pump in place that are accesable through the holes in the pulley. If you use a 6" extension and a 1/2" socket you can reach them. this will allow the pump to be removed and hang by the hoses and be out of the way. I was told also to inspect the cam sensor while it is apart because you have to remove the water pump in order to get to it.

first place I would look is into buying a repair manual at your local autoparts store ., while there ask to see the power steering pump that fits your auto . so you know what to look for when you open the hood ..this is not an easy job nor a clean one and many times not the problem to begin with .

How to replace a power steering pump on a 2007 gmc acadia?


Take it to a repair shop. It\'s a gigantic pain. Plus, if you don\'t have a good working mechanical knowledge of your Acadia\'s power steering system, it will still make noise after you replace the pump. Bleeding the air out of the system is absolutely critical to keep it from making noise.
Not the answer you probably wanted, but having done several pumps myself with the vehicle up in the air on a lift, it\'s still a pain.

I have a 99 voyager with 3.0 .do you have to remove the pulley first on the power steering pump befor you take out the pump.not much room to take out he pump with the pulley.thanks


You can but its not necessary. If you choose to do so you will need a strap wrench to hold the pulley so you can unbolt it. You can also try to unbolt it with the belt on but usually it will slip.

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.

2007 S40 WONT START ''POWER STEERING FAILURE'' CAME ON


The power steering is actually ELECTRIC steering on this car Most common and basically only failure is 2 30 amp fuses in under hood fuse block Only other thing is mechanical and would set a trouble code and sat power steering on your dash. FYI. Jump Starting your car from the +- Terminals found near the FUSE box under the hood, will Blow the Fuses for the Power Steering. Always Jump start your car from the Battery Terminals in the Trunk

Locate the power steering pump and hoses on your vehicle. The power steering pump is located at the front of your engine, near the top of the motor. It will have a black fill cap on it that is labeled "power steering fluid."
1)Clean the outside of the pressurized power steering pump hoses and the power steering pump with clean shop rags to remove any oil deposits. Check the exterior of the lines to identify any signs of steering fluid leakage.
2)Start the motor and turn your steering wheel back and forth several times to cause the pressure in the steering pump to build up. Turn the engine off and recheck the hoses for fluid leaks. Examine the power steering pump for any signs of cracks or damage. If your power steering pump is damaged you need to replace it with a new pump by removing the bolts that hold the pump onto the bracket, taking the pump belt off the pulley and disconnecting the hoses. Replace the power steering pump by reattaching the hoses with a screw clamp and attaching the pump to the bracket. Place the belt around the pump pulley and apply pressure by pulling back on the pump and tightening the belt by using a socket wrench to tighten the bolt on the bracket. You can find a power steering pump for your vehicle at your local automotive.
3)Check the fittings and clamps for any signs of wear or leakage and tighten any loose clamps with a screwdriver. Inspect the hose leading from the power steering pump back into the firewall that leads to the steering wheel. If you find that a leak has developed in the power steering hose that leads to the steering column, consult a mechanic or take your vehicle to a local service center and have an inspection done.
4)Remove damaged power steering hoses by taking the cap off of the power steering pump and then unscrewing the clamp on the hose. Recover draining power steering fluid by placing a clean container below the hose or power steering pump when you loosen the hoses and allow the fluid to drain into the container.
5)Repair power steering hoses where the damaged area is close to the end of the hose by trimming off the affected area with a utility or sharp knife and reattaching the hose with a screw clamp by tightening the clamp with a screwdriver. For damage that is in the middle of the hose or near a section that can't be repaired, replace the hose with a power steering hose that can be purchased from any automotive supply store in your area or online at an automotive supply website, such as the ones listed below in the resources section, and connect the new hose to the power steering pump with a screw clamp.
6)Fill the power steering pump to the proper level with power steering fluid and replace the cap. Start the vehicle motor to test the system. Once you have verified that the power steering system is working properly, shut off the engine.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya
