Don't use a standard bearing puller it doesn't work and may damage the pulley. I went to a local parts store "Salvo" and they had a Ford Power Steering Pump Pulley puller. It works. It seems like you have to put as so much force into it that something would break, but no, it just starts to come off, worth all of the 17.00 I put into it.

How do I replace the power steering pump?


Hi Brian:
Check this REMOVAL and INSTALLATION procedure... (see Figures 2, 3 and 4)
  1. Position a fluid catch pan under the power steering pump.
  2. Disconnect the feed and return hoses from the power steering pump, then drain the excess fluid into the catch pan.
On models equipped with a remote fluid reservoir, disconnect and plug the hose(s) in order to prevent system contamination or excessive fluid loss.
  1. Remove the drive belt from the pulley.
  2. Install a puller tool such as J-25034, or equivalent onto the power steering pump pulley. While holding the pilot bolt, turn the tool nut counterclockwise in order to press the drive pulley from the pump.
When installing the puller tool onto the power steering pump pulley, be sure that the pilot bolt bottoms in the pump shaft by turning the head of the pilot bolt.

Fig. 4: Installing the power steering pump pulley

  1. On most models, it may be necessary to unplug the electrical connection from the A/C compressor, unfasten the compressor mounting bolts and set the compressor to one side without disconnecting the lines.
  2. If equipped, unfasten the power steering filler tube bolt and remove the filler tube.
  3. Remove the rear brace retainers and the brace.
  4. Remove the power steering pump-to-bracket bolts and then remove the pump from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position the pump to the vehicle and secure using the front retaining bolts to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm) 2.2L engines. (50 Nm). On 4.3L engines tighten the bolts to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm).
  2. If equipped, install the rear brace and tighten the retainers to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm) on 1994-98 2.2L engines. On 1999 2.2L engines, tighten the brace retainers to 37 ft. lbs. On 1994 4.3L models tighten the retainers to 24 ft. lbs. (33 Nm). On 1995-99 4.3L models, tighten the retainers to 31 ft. lbs. (41 Nm).
  3. If removed, install the A/C compressor.
  4. If removed, install the filler tube and its retainer. Tighten the retainer to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
  5. Use a pulley installer such as J-25033 or equivalent to press the drive pulley onto the power steering pump. While holding the pilot bolt, turn the tool nut clockwise in order to press the drive pulley onto the pump. Check that the pulley is flush within 0.010 in. (0.25mm) of the shaft end.
When positioning the installer tool onto the power steering pump pulley, be sure that the pilot bolt bottoms in the pump shaft by turning the head of the pilot bolt.
  1. Properly install the drive belt and, if applicable, adjust the tension.
Be sure to secure any hoses which may get in the way or rub other components.
  1. Remove the caps, then connect the feed and return hoses to the pump.
  2. Properly refill and bleed the power steering system.
  3. Test drive the vehicle.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

I almost have the water pump off but there is one bolt that is behind the power steerng pulley that I can not remove. I was wondering how to remove the power steering pulley?


To remove the pulley wheel from the power steering pump you typically have to remove 3 bolts but to get to those 3 bolts you have to use a socket and go through the holes on the pulley itself.

Remove the drive belt and the pulley.
  • 3 Position the drain container under the power steering pump. Remove the drain plug from the bottom of the pump using the metric ratchet set. Let the fluid drain from the pump into the drain container. Replace the drain plug to the bottom of the power steering pump.
  • 4 Remove the securing bolts from the right and left side of the reservoir and the pump using the metric ratchet set. Pull the pump upward and disconnect the hose from the bottom of the pump using the wrench. Pull the pump from the engine compartment.
  • 5 Lower the new power steering pump into the engine compartment. Reconnect the hose to the bottom of the power steering pump. Position the new power steering pump onto the engine. Replace the securing bolts the right and left side of the pump and reservoir. Tighten the bolts using the metric ratchet set.
  • 6 Replace the power steering pump pulley the opposite way that you removed it. Reconnect the drive belt.
  • Fill the power steering pump reservoir with fresh power steering fluid. Start the engine and rotate the steering wheel to circulate the new power steering fluid.

    Not that bad to do, loosen nut on center of pulley before removing belt, this way it will hold pulley while loosening nut, after that remove belt, remove both power steering hoses, now remove pulley and both mounting bolt to power steering pump, install new pump in reverse order.

    Water pump removal on a 1996 Buick Riviera (supercharged)


    there are two bolts that hold the power steering pump in place that are accesable through the holes in the pulley. If you use a 6" extension and a 1/2" socket you can reach them. this will allow the pump to be removed and hang by the hoses and be out of the way. I was told also to inspect the cam sensor while it is apart because you have to remove the water pump in order to get to it.
