No. Save yourself some money! Do get it fixed though because if you do not, there is no lubrication and the bearings will give out and send the pulley flying into the radiator or worse. If you would like instructions on how to perform this repair, let me know.

SOURCE: 96 landrover disco power steering pump bracket broken off

Really stupid question but did you get the correct belt and did you adjust the belt tensioner? On vehicles with spring type tensioner it must be pried back and then released. Slide type tensioners are usually either part of the pump bracket or alternator bracket assembly.

I think any dealer would have these on hand; if my memory is working right, these did have to be a specific class and will need to be torqued carefully to avoid stripping the female threads.

just replace the pulley it is cheaper take to autostore that has a press and they can press the new one on (try autozone.com to see if they have your car listed for diagrams pictures and step by step instructions if your car is not listed then try your local library they have all the car manuals and even copy them for you)

SOURCE: Power steering went out on

Have you checked your tie rods? Possibility one is either bent or broken, I've seen it before on TB's. That pulley shaft is a common problem to break, especially when cold out. PS pumps/pulley shafts and tie rods will snap if doing donuts in the snow with the steering wheel cranked, or off-roading. The PS is completely mechanical, no fuses or relays.

2002 Chevy silverado 2500HD No power steering or brakes


The shaft in your power steering pump has broken. Your brakes work off of a system known as Hydra-Boost. If this shaft is broken then your steering and brakes are lost. I contacted GM after I had my power steering pump replaced and they sent me a check for the cost of my repairs. My truck was not under warranty or recalled but earlier models (2500HD) had been recalled for the power steering pump shaft. The pump was the same part number for my 2002 2500HD as the recalled years. Good Luck!

2004 4.2 ltr envoy power steering stopped working - no leaking


Most likely the power steering pump is your problem. It sounds like the shaft inside the pump has broken and it is not pumping fluid. I would install a new pump and see what happens. The other option would be the rack and pinion (steering gear). The power steering pump is the cheaper of the two and usually the problem. I hope this helps you.
