First look at the pump.There are 2 horizonal bolts. They should be silver unless they have been painted. Remove that black air intake tube so you can get to the pump. Now place some old rags underneath the pump and have a small bowl or something you can catch the fluid that is fixing to leak. Remove the two fluid lines. The one on the side with the clamp is the return line. Disconnect it and catch whatever fluid you can so not to make a big mess. After that, on the bottom hose (pressure hose) There will be no pressure so don't be affraid. It will take two wrenches,one to loosen the fittings on the hose and the other as a "backup" wrench on the metal line. Now wrap a rag around the ends of the two hoses to stop any mess they want to make. Now remove those two horizonal silver bolts. One at the top and one at the bottom. Pull the pump strait off. Now clean up any mess that it made. The key here is not to make a mess. On the new pump,put a little engine oil on the gasket that fits against the intake cam. It will seal better. You may need to swap over the reservoir to the new pump to save money. After you get done,dont over fill it,start it,check for leaks,turn it left stop to right stop at least twice to work out air in the lines. Check the fluid level again. After you get done you will say "that wasn't to bad"...

Changing the power steering fluid on a 2004 chevrolet cavalier your power steering hoses to your steering and disconnect and use a container to catch fluid,you can also loosen hoses at pump and put towel over hole and blow out line to get all fluid out,make sure when you blow , the other end is secure and fluid doesn't go every where,good to have another person helping.Here's a link on how to bleed.

I have a 2000 cavalier that is leaking power steering fluid. I believe its the clamp on the return line. Do i need to replace the whole line or can I just reclamp it?

Return is an easy line to replace. If it's old and shabby change it. If it seems to be in reasonably good shape, cut about 1/2" off the leaking end and re-clamp it. (providing you have enough slack)

Power steering bomb

I presume you mean the 2.2L 4cyl, and by "bomb" you mean the power steeing pump. I use for my parts, good price and service. That's where I got my Cavalier parts when I owned an '02 a year ago. They have a pump for $66 ($49 after you return the old core).

Hope this helps.
