    You can buy the part or parts at this website,, they have the pump and other parts you need, I checked for you. I have bought all my parts for 14 years from them, they ship fast and all the parts are high quality

Your correct it's not the best idea, the steering will be heavy, particularly at lower speeds, parking may also be an issue.
if your adamant you want to by pass it, if it drives off its on dedicated belt you can remove the belt

yes , i am sure you checked for leaks on the rack at the boots on both ends near the wheels. if none try adding a power steering conditioner to the pump . drain the fliud from the reservoir first by taking off one of the hoses the more conditioner the better. this may not work but it is an easy and cheap way first. there is also a relief valve in many pumps that might be stuck not allowing pressure to build.

SOURCE: steering wheel of my Toyota Corolla LE 2007 vivrates

Hello. A vibration in the steerign wheel indicates an issue with the front tires. They are either out of balance, and would need to be rebalanced, or it is possible (although remotely) that the tire(s) may be compromised (after hitting a pothole), the belts in the tire may be corrupted. What I would suggest is to take the car to a reputable tire place, and get the balance checked. While the tire is on the balancer, the Tech will be able to see if the tire is out-of-round due to possible road damage. Probably just a tire balance problem. Thanks for choosing FixYA for assistance.

Power steering fluid leak in 99 Toyota Corolla

look for split in the hard line where fluid is leaking. If you see split, change the line only. make sure power steering reservoir is filled and rack and pinion is full (charge with steering wheel left/right motion). You should be able to remove wheel and inside wheel panel to see power steering fluid shooting out of any hole. There is hydraulic pressure on the lines.

How do you remove a power steering pump for a 1998 Toyota Corolla? I have a loose pulley and I'm wondering if I have a bad pump, pulley, or just need to re-tighten it?

It is most likely the shaft is bad and a new pump is required. You can try tightening it but it most likely will come loose shortly and also not spin true and throw the belt. You have to disconnect everything from the pump to take it out,

With the age of the car I would be worried a little.
A very common problem is the suspension parts .

Steering Noise / Vibration

It is not the firewall. This means your power-steering engine has gone bad and it might have affected the steering rack.

You need an expert to fix this for you.
