Question about Renault Le Car
The power steering pump is an integral part of your car's power steering system. If your power steering doesn't work, your safety and security could be hampered. Learn how to replace a defective pump so you can get back on the road fast.
1) Loosen the drive belt and slip the belt over the pulley. Use a suction gun to **** out as much power steering fluid as possible. Place a drain pan under the pump and disconnect the lines and fluid return hose. You may need to remove the air cleaner housing to access the return hose. Allow everything to drain completely.
2) Cap the ends of all the lines to prevent leakage. Remove the mounting fasteners and detach the pump from the engine. You should be able to pull it free from the car completely and take a moment to inspect it and see what went wrong. You could then prevent the demise of the new power steering pump by addressing the source of the problem.
3) Measure how far the pump shaft protrudes from the face of the pulley hub, if it is necessary to remove the pulley to access the pump, as is the case with some engines. This assembly will need to be reinstalled to the correct positioning after the new pump is installed.
4) Install the new pump using the reverse removal procedure and make sure all fasteners are tightened securely. Also, take a moment to bleed the power steering system.
