    Power steering belt on my Bongo is loose & requires adjustment but not sure how to carry out what I thought was a simple operation. There are two 12mm bolts which appear to be holding the top of the pump to the block. Could they be adjustment bolts ? Many thanks

I had to completely remove the adjuster bolt, including the lock bolt, so that I could move the P/S pump enough to get the new belt on. It was still a tight fit. I find that removing the headlamp assembly makes access much easier.

How do you loosen a power steering tensioner on a 86 Chevy caprice?


I've got an 85 2.5 celebrity and am assuming that your 86 is similar. Most people might think this is a incorrect question, but I've spend hours trying to locate all the bolts to loosen. The alternator belt is straightforward. Loosen the alternator bolt in located in the slider portion and the pivot bolt (15mm on mine). The compressor belt is straightforward. Loosen the two compressor adjustment bolts in the slider slot and the loosen the pivot bolt. This belt will be hard to remove even with the compressor fully pushed down. Take some vitamins. The worse belt by far is the power steering belt. Loosen the pivot bolt on the bottom of the power steering "canister". There are two adjustment bolts to loosen from my memory. The one that is easy to find is on the engine side of the power steering canister. The other is hard to see but is located on the pulley side between two of the pulleys. It's also hard to get a wrench on. But, you've got to find and loosen this bolt. I cringe when this belt breaks. Good Luck!!

Need replace power steering pump


This is how the steps on how to changepower steering pump on GMC K1500. First you have to disconnect the battery byturning the positive terminal bolt counterclockwise and removing the lead. Thendisconnect the lower power steering line by turning the line nutcounterclockwise. Allow the pump to drain in the drain pan. Once the pump isdrained, disconnect the upper line by turning the line nut counterclockwise. 2. But on older models, turn the adjustmentmount bolt counterclockwise until the tension on the primary drive belt isrelieved. Remove the belt from the power steering pump pulley. Remove theremaining mount bolts by turning them counterclockwise. Maneuver the pump fromthe engine. 3. On newer models, press the tensionpulley arm to slacken the belt enough to slide it from underneath the idlepulley wheel. Release the tension pulley arm. There should then be enough slackto take the belt from the power steering pump pulley. It may be necessary toremove the A/C compressor on some models. Remove it by having it evacuated ofall freon, removing the wiring harness adapter plug, removing the line nuts,and then turning the mount bolts counterclockwise; taking the compressor outgives improved access to the power steering pump. Remove the pump by using thespecialized tool (available for rent at an auto parts store) to turn the centermount bolt counterclockwise. Maneuver the pump from the engine compartment. 4. Replace the pump and attach the mountbolts by turning them clockwise. Reattach the line nuts by turning themclockwise. Replace the drive belt by the tension pulley method (serpentinebelts), or using the adjustment bolt to pull the pump to the desired belttension. Replace the fluid to the proper cold level. 5. Reconnect the battery by attaching thelead and turning the positive terminal bolt clockwise.

Looking for a belt tensioner for a 1997 Jeep Cherokee Country. Where would I look? Perhaps I am not calling it by its correct name as no one can even guess what I am looking for...Thanks!


Do you mean the tensioner pulley?

Then, I would look for something with a 1/2" square hole in a pivoting spring loaded pulley that is designed to put 'tension' on the serpentine belt.

Depending on the engine, it can be located in various positions.

Removing power steering pump


To replace the power steering pump, proceed as follows:
  1. Disconnect the power steering return hose from the remote reservoir or pump. Allow the fluid to drain from this hose into a drain pan. Discard the used fluid.
  2. Loosen the bracket or belt tension adjusting bolt, and the pump mounting bolt.
  3. Loosen the belt tension until the belt can be removed. On some cars, it is necessary to lift the vehicle on a hoist and gain access to the power steering pump from underneath the vehicle.
  4. Remove the hoses from the pump, and cap the pump fittings and hoses.
  5. Remove the belt tension adjusting bolt and the mounting bolt, and remove the pump.
  6. Check the pump mounting bolts and bolt holes for wear. Worn bolts must be replaced. If the bolt mounting holes in the pump are worn, pump replacement is necessary.
  7. Reverse steps 1 through 5 to install the power steering pump. Tighten the belt as described previously, and tighten the pump mounting and bracket bolts to the manufacturer's specifications. If o-rings are used on the pressure hose, replace the o-rings. Be sure the hoses are not contacting the exhaust manifold, catalytic converter, or exhaust pipe during or after pump replacement.
  8. Fill the pump reservoir with the manufacturer's recommended power steering fluid, and bleed air from the power steering system as described earlier.
