SOURCE: whats the best way to remove the crankshaft pully

Put a socket and breaker bar on the bolt, set the bar against the control arm, then turn the starter just briefly to spin the crankshaft and push the breaker bar against the control arm. This should loosen the bolt.

same way as the 93 corolla, made same day. same plant.

fsm quote: for pump, because a hose is same and covered. here.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the air cleaner.
  2. Remove the power steering pump drive belt.
  3. Loosen the power steering hose retaining clip and remove the return hose from the power steering pump.
  4. Remove the pressure hose from the pump using a injection line wrench J-29698 or equivalent.
  5. Remove the upper mounting bolt from the pump.
  6. Remove the vacuum hoses from the power steering switch. Remove the 3 bolts retaining the pump bracket mount and the 2 from the engine block and the one from the engine mount.
  7. Remove the lower mounting bolt and the power steering pump from the vehicle.
  8. Installation is the reverse order of the removal procedure. Torque the power steering pump mounting brackets to 29 ft. lbs. (39 Nm). Connect the pressure hose to the power steering pump union bolt and torque it to 32 ft. lbs. (44 Nm). Adjust the belt tension and bleed the system.


the tool, in mech, jargon is a crow foot.

Replace the fan belt tensioner on a 2000 ford focus


The pulley wheel bearing on the auxiliary drive belt tensioner, which does not come as a separate part from ford, was showing signs of wear so I decided to replace the tensioner.

It's not a simple "whip the old one out" and "stick another one in" as the information in my Haynes manual suggests. In fact the information in my Haynes Service and Repair Manual - Ford Focus 1998 to 2001 (S to Y reg) Petrol and Diesel.

Also, looking under the car it appeared that the Power Steering Pump is bolted onto, or on top of, the tensioner which means the power steering pump may have to come off in order to remove the tensioner. Not so simple a job as the Haynes manual describes.

Investigation Work:

I have discovered there are three, 15mm nuts (Torqued to 48Nm) securing the Tensioner, two below the power steering pump and one above, identifiable by three protruding studs with T40 torx ends. An E8 torx spanner would be necessary if it were proposed to remove these studs.
In addition, I have also discovered that the power steering pump, secured with four, 10mm bolts, is bolted directly on top of the tensioner, piggy back style (There are four bolt holes in the tensioner body for mounting the power steering pump). So in order to remove the tensioner, it is also necessary to remove (and drain) the power steering pump. An alternative method of removing the tensioner might be to unbolt the pump (without draining) and move it to one side out the way while the tensioner is being removed.

Creating More Workspace:

It is necessary to remove the CAC to inlet manifold pipe (drivers side) i.e. the wide, black pipe bolted to the top of the engine, to gain access to the P.S. pump and move the Engine Coolant Resevoir to one side.
Also, to make the process easier and create additional space, it may be helpful to remove the following additional items from the car:
  • fuel filter (and plastic retaining clip).
  • oil filter (to make access easier to the nuts bolts and pipes from below the car)
  • the EGR cooler connection pipe (optional).
Essential Items:

  • 15mm Deep, Hex Socket and large 15mm Ring Spanner - tensioner mounting nuts
  • E8 Torx Spanner for removing 3 studs with T40 Torx ends (method 2 only)
  • 18mm (or 3/8W, 7/16BS) Crowfoot wrench for removing union nut on HP pipe power steering pump. (method 1 only)
  • 10mm ring or combination spanners, long and short (P.S. Pump).
  • 10mm, hex socket ( narrower 3/8" drive preferred) - power steering pump bolts (Methods 1 and 2)
  • Hose Clamp (clamping bottom hose power steering pump)
  • Teflon seal / o-ring for union on HP Line, Power Steering Pump or new union (See Notes 2 & 3)
Teflon O-ring:

Here is a general description of the "external" O-ring on the Power Steering Pump HP union. Someone may be able to find a supplier for the o-rings on the Internet Note that the "internal" black, rubber o-ring is also an integral part of the replacement union.
  • Colour: White
  • Material: Teflon (PTFE)
  • Cross Sectional Area: 1mm x 1mm (square)
  • Outside Diameter .......... 16.5mm
  • Inside Diameter .............14.5mm
Note that sizes are approximate as the o-ring may have expanded slightly as I was removing it from the union. The diameter of the groove the o-ring sits in is 14mm.

1996 Geo Prizm power steering noise


Hi:
If you have been loosing fluid for some time, and running the car with low fluid in the power steering pump, then the pump is most likely worn and causing your noise. Do you know where your leak is? You might need just a power steering hose, but no matter what, your power steering pump is the most likely cause of your noise!

How to change front wheel bearings on a 1996geo prism


To change the bearings on the front of the prizm, you will need to remove the steering knuckle unless you have the means of an on car bearing press, such as a "tomcat". You will have to remove the wheel, caliper, rotor, outer tie rod end nut, axle nut, lower ball joint mounting bolts, steering knuckle to strut mount bolts. press the hub from the knuckle assembly, remove internal snap ring that retains bearing and press the bearing out the other side of the knuckle. Reverse proceedure to install. You will need an alignment once you are done.
Good luck
