You'll need a power steering pump puller available at most part stores. They are very easy to use and it should have directions in the package on proper use. Just think if you can do yours, you can do most of the domestics pumps out there.

96 Ram V6, changed the power steering pump and now can't get the belt to line up, fraying on the outside edg.


Hopefully, you did not install the pulley on the pump upside-down. (I have seen this happen before) Otherwise, the end of the pump shaft should be flush with the flange on the pulley. If it is off just a little one way or the other, it can cause fraying and severe belt noise.

The belt in my 01 Dodge Dakota squeals badly. Started when I had my power steering pump replaced. I tried changing the belt and the tensioner, but still squeals. Is it possible the pulley on the power...


excess mechanical drag from the pump can cause the belt to slip and squeal, but before focusing on the pump I'd check the condition, tension and alignment of the belt. I might even try cleaning all the pulleys with an aerosol brake cleaner and install a new belt, particularly if the current one has more than 50,000 miles on it. It might be that the squeal is coming from or caused by a different belt-driven accessory.
A more typical noise from a power-steering pump is a high-pitched whine, not a squeal. Usually, if the steering wheel is stationary, meaning that the steering rack is not "asking" for assistance from the high-pressure fluid from the pump, there's little or no noise

you could adjust your tensioner to fix it, but most likely your power steering pumps pulley is not completely parallel with the the crank pulley
