You have to rent the proper puller to remove the pully. Its the only way to get at the bolts.

I WILL LIKE TO KNOW HOW CAN I REPLACE THE POWER STEERING PUMP ON A 2001 CHEVY MALIBU


1. Remove serpentine belt

2. loosen power steering pressure and return hoses

3. Remove nut from pressure line mounting on alternator bracket

4. remove power steering pump mounting bolts.

5. Lift pump assembly from engine mounting and remove hoses.

6. Reverse order to install. Fill and bleed system.

NOTE: A new or rebuilt power steering pump will most likely not come with a pulley attached. You will need a power steering pulley remover/installer tool to transfer the pully from the old pump to the new one.

I have a 1995 lexus Ls400.is there a way to tighten the power steering pulley without removing it.


  • xus LS 400 and locate the power steering pump pulley, fluid reservoir and pump on the upper front driver side of the engine.
  • 2 Connect the pulley remove tool to the front of the power steering pulley. Brace the arms on the pulley tool on the **** of the pulley. Connect the metal key in the middle of the pulley tool to the nut in the middle of the pulley. Connect the power drill to the pulley tool and pull the trigger to remove the pulley securing nut. 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. I no i gave you directions on how to remove the whole power steering pump question is the pully loose or are you wanting to just change a belt good luck happy holidays

    Where is the watter pump located on a 94 mercury sable? How do i take it off to replace it?


    this is for a 3.8 v6. first Disconnect the battery. then take off the Radiator cap and set it aside. on driver side at the bottom of the Radiator. there a twist valve. this is the coolant drain. put a large container under drain then open the valve. once it stops. on the passenger side towards the back in front of the belt tensioner but under the altenator is the water pump. but to get to it you have to take off the mounting bolts for the altenator (LEAVE ALL WIRES CONNECTED this will save time) now set it aside. now loosen the 4 bolts on the water pump pully. now take the drive belt off. take a pully puller and take the pully off the power steering. there should be a metal support going from the back of the a/c compresser to the water pump. undo the 2 bolts hold the bracket on the a/c compressor.(on a side note do not loose any of the bolts cause ford dont carry them anymore and hardware stores dont have them. only place i found is a junkyard) detach the hoses on the water pump. (Caution there will be some coolant left have container ready)l
    now loosen the bolts on water pump. now under the car near the front right there are to engine mounts LOOSEN THEM ONLY ENOUGH TO RAISE THE ENGINE ENOUGH TO CLEAR. using a jack. raise only the passenger side of the engine enough for the water pump to clear the wheel well. once that is done undo the bolts on the water pump pully and take off and pull off the water pump and take off the support bracket and pull off the water pump. clean off leftover residue on the engine black. now put the silicon gel/paste on both sides of the new gasket. use a decent amount but not too much. then wipe off edges. and put the water pump back as shown below.


    tar171_0.gif
    attach the hoses. now put the support bracket back on then tighten the bolts down only a little and let the silicon set overnight for best leak protection. (by doing this. it allows the sillicon to create a good strong seal) after it set overnight tighten down the bolts. put the water pump pully back on put on the bolts hand tight . lower the jack SLOWLY! now retorque the enigine mounts to 70lbs i believe. put the 2 bolts for the a/c compressor back in. put the power steering pully back on. (MAKE sure you aline the pully up with the others or it will throw the belt) rebolt on the altenator. put the belt back on and refil the cooling system with coolant. reconnect the battery. start the engine for 30 sec then turn off check for leaks and top off coolant then then fill the rezivor to proper level. restart engine and run till operating temp then check for leaks

    I'am replacing water pump 2006 grand prix,all bolts are remove but one. I can't remove it because theres a wheel pully in the way. I think it's the power steering pump help.


    You may have to remove the pump...
    BUT , maybe not...
    The pump pully has holes in it... with the power steering belt loose or off ... turn the pully to see if the holes will allign with the bolt you are trying to remove... if not... then the power steering pump must be removed to gain access to the last bolt..

    Need to know how to adjust serpentine belt, please show diagram. 6 cyl engine.


    Really don't need a diagram. Loosen the slide bolts on the power steering pump. loosen or tighten the pump by turning the jack screw (long transverse bolt) under the pump. Once the belt is tightened up, lock down the slide bolts and you are finished.

    If you have the same pulley arrangement that most 4.0 engines have that pulley is an idler not a tensioner. Your power steering pump has a pivot bolt, and a slide under the pump. You adjust belt tension using the pump.
