Replacing Power Steering Pump

Hey. I searched threads with "power steering pump", and got way too many to research. Isn't there a special tool I need to pull the pump? Is there an additional tool for putting it back together?

Also, the two options are with or without a reservoir. Is it difficult to swap the reservoir or should I just get the pump with the reservoir? Thanks.

What is this on, Tim? My 71C30 402 has a remote resevoir with the power steering pump.

Tim, just unbolt it from the motor after disconnecting the hoses. You should be able to match it up at your local parts store.

Re: Replacing Power Steering Pump

This is on my S10. I looked up the process and it says I need two tools. One to remove the pulley, J-25034, and one to install it, J-25033. About $50.00 each. Nice. I don't think I can unbolt it because it's pressed on to the gears.

Re: Replacing Power Steering Pump

Not sure what im looking at. That looks like you're stearing box. Is you're power steering pump part of your steering box. To remove the arms from your steering box, undo the nuts and use a pickle fork and a hammer. You parts store should have the tools you need to loan out.

Re: Replacing Power Steering Pump

OK. I realize I just put pics of the steering box up there, not the power steering pump. Total brain damage moment there. Sorry. The question is about the pulley on the pump and the tools I'd need for that.

Re: Replacing Power Steering Pump

The parts store will lend you the tools, if your replacement pump doesn't come with the pulley.

Re: Replacing Power Steering Pump

OK. I apologize for this mistake. The power steering fluid is leaking from the bottom of the steering box. Maybe that is why I confused myself. Is there a way to determine where the leak is coming from? The power steering fluid is full when I check it so it must only leak when it's parked.

Re: Replacing Power Steering Pump

Tim, I'd check the hoses first..........are they leaking to the end of the steering box and dripping off from there? Do they just need a little tightening? That's where I'd start, check that, clean them off and see if that fixes it.
