You will need an assortment of metric sockets and a rachet you will also need a pulley remover and installer your local auto parts store should have a puller and installer you can borrow. Make sure you bleed the new pump before you start the truck. You can do this after the resovoir is connected and has oil in it the rotate the pulley by hand.

How to remove my power steering pump

hope this one help
This instructable is designed into four main parts. Here's the outline:

1) Gather the materials
-- Instructable step 1 - This includes tools, a new pump, fluids, etc.
2) Remove the leaking pump
-- Instructable step 2 - Drain the Power Steering system
-- Instructable step 3 - Remove accessories from Power Steering system
-- Instructable step 4 - Remove the pulley and bolts
-- Instructable step 5 - Remove power steering pump
3) Install the new pump
-- Instructable step 6 - Place the new power steering pump
-- Instructable step 7 - Press on the power steering pump pulley
-- Instructable step 8 - Align the pulley and attach the belts
-- Instructable step 9 - Flush and fill the power steering system
4) Cleanup
-- Instructable step 10 - Cleanup

You'll need some tools to complete this task. Before you start, gather the necessary equipment -- you will not be able to use the car once you start the replacement! It is always a good idea to have a friend on call, or a second car available.

Equipment list:

  • Power Steering pump (to replace defective pump)
  • Two (2) quarts power steering fluid or appropriate ATF (to flush and fill). More than 2 quarts if flushing the rack is desired.
  • Power Steering Pulley Puller set (to remove and attach the pulley). Some auto parts stores will loan the tool sets.
  • Socket set.
  • Open end wrench set (for use with puller set).
  • Leverage pipe or extension bar (in case the pulley is hardened on the spindle).
  • Drain pan (to drain & flush power steering system).
  • Wheel bearing grease for sliding pulley on the pump hub.
  • 2' wood 1x2 for assistance with aligning the pulleys. Any straight tool will work fine -- a level, metal rod, wood, whatever.

How to change the power steering pump in a 1998 pontiac grand prix

It is maybe a 6 on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the worst possible job. You will need a power steering pulley puller, it is a special tool kit.

Diagram of how to change a water pump for a 1997 mustang v6

On the 97 V6 you'll also need a puller to remove the power steering pulley as this bolts to the water pump housing. This is unusual. Doing this now actually. You can rent the "puller" at autozone. Remember to disconnect the battery and drain the coolant before you get started. The rest is in the Haynes. It'll take time, but its not a hard job with the right tools.

Repair instructions for a leaking power steering pump on a 1997 honda accord. leaking from the shft bearing behind the pulley. need instructions to replace the oil seal.

Not a simple job unless you have proper tools. You'll need a gear puller to remove the pully and a compressiondevice to install the seal and retaining ring. Try a auto junk yard for a used pump. It'll be cheaper and a simple bolt on job.
