Are you experiencing issues with your power steering pump? Follow along with our step-by-step guide to replace it yourself.

First, using a 14mm socket and a bar, loosen the tensioner and remove the serpentine belt from the power steering pulley. Set the belt aside.

Next, use a 14mm deep socket to loosen and remove the back bolt of the power steering pump and set it aside. Then, remove the lower forward bolt.

Place towels on each side of the power steering pump to catch any residual fluid, and remove the hoses from the pump, being careful to catch any fluid that may leak out.

Now, it’s time to install the new pump. Pop off the caps on each side, remove the hose clamp, and detach the hose. Then, attach the hose to the new pump and secure it with the clamp.

Use a 10mm socket to remove the bolts on the side of the pump and remove the hose. Place the old pump in a catch can and install the new one, securing it with the bolts.

Reattach the hoses and tighten the bolts securely. Then, reinstall the serpentine belt, ensuring it is properly positioned on all the corresponding pulleys.

After starting the vehicle, allow the power steering pump to cycle fluid and check the fluid level, topping it off as necessary with the recommended fluid.
