How do you take the pulley off the power steering pump?
You have to use a pulley puller that you can find at many parts stores or order on-line. Do not hammer the pulley onto the new pump or you will damage it. Use an installer or the bolt, nut and washer that comes with many replacement P.S. pumps to press the pulley on the shaft, making sure it is pressed on as far as it was on the old one was so the belt will be properly aligned.

Get a 5/8 flare wrench to take off the high pressure hose and a screwdriver to take off the low pressure hose. Drain out fluid. Then you'll have to get a pulley puller to pull off the pulley. Once off the mounting bolts are exposed for you to take off the pump. Be sure to check brackets for cracks a…s the 89 is prone to this. Mounting is the reverse of this. ........................................................................................................................................ Just a suggestion, I just replaced my power steering pump on a 94 which should be the same. Remove the two piece radiator shroud which improves accessibility. Now you can see what you are doing much better. When you get to the pulley removal part.... leave it on (unless you have a good air supply and 1/2" impact gun) and remove the bolts from the aluminum bracket that goes into the cylinder head. If your pump has a remote reservoir remove the filler hose at the top of the pump. Next remove the two front bolts holding the ac compressor to the aluminum bracket. Slide the bracket down and you can take the whole deal to Advance or Auto Zone and they will gladly remove the pulley and pump and reinstall the new one back on the bracket. (MORE)
It must be pressed off. You then press it on the new pump. Special tools are required. Some auto parts stores will rent the tool free, if you buy the pump from them.
To the best of my knowledge on this truck you have to first remove the power steering pump then get a tool called a "power steering pully puller" and make sure you get one with the power steering pully installer with it. Your local auto parts store will have one and a few have ones they will loan yo…u. The parts representative there should be able to instruct you on the proper use of both tools. (MORE)
How do you remove the pulley from the power steering pump on a 1999 Honda Passport if it does not have the bolt on pulley?
Answer . It must be pressed off. Any machine shop will be able to do this.. Answer . Although there is a relatively cheap tool on the market for pulling pullies from PS pumps (yes, the tool is that specific), most auto-parts places will lend you them for free if you leave a deposit, return it… undamaged and in a reasonable amount of time. They do not always work, especially if the pulley is seized on (spraying it with WD 40 a few times over the course of 24 hours prior to the removal helps). Also, the center bolt on the tool is about 8 inches long, and when in the tool, the overall length is over 10 inches. In some vehicles, especially snub-nosed vans, you might have to remove the rad to have room to use this tool. Cutting it off becomes a feasible option; if you wind up having to cut this thing off, a replacement pulley is about 20 bucks. (MORE)
Answer . \nThere is a special puller made for this. Maybe you could rent one.
Answer . This has got to be one of the biggest pains in the rear end I have ever had the pleasure of doing with the engine installed.\n. \nThe alternator/serpentine belt will need to be removed. Right wheel, and inner plastic fenders behind the wheel.\n. \nPower steering lines will need to be …unbolted and all mounting rods and hardware removed.\n. \nReturn line can be removed when you drop the unit down.\n. \nThe biggest problem I ran into with the replacement was reconnecting the return line. It took me 30 minutes do get the clamp on just right. It is in such a position that I had to use a 2 foot long set of angled needlenose pliers. \n. \nThis was more miserable than replacing the entire engine. Be patient. (MORE)

How do you get the power steering pulley off to change the water pump on a 1991 mercury cougar 3.8 l?
You DONT !!!! have to remove the power steering pump pulley to remove the water pump. There are 2 Bolts & 1 Nut (15mm Deep Well) that holds the housing on, by removing those 3 items, the alternator & power steering pump will slide off towards the front of the car as a whole unit therefor allowing yo…u access to the water pump. Its so much easier that way, that's how I did mine, I have a 91 Mercury Cougar LS 3.8 Dont forget to put sealer on top of the gasket after before you install your new water pump, I forgot & had to take the whole shebang apart twice lol. Answer A special socket is required. Commonly called a power steering puller. It is a "U" shaped tool with a bolt running down the center. The U slips over the end of the pully and the bolt is tightened down to "pull" the pulley off. It is pretty simple to use. To reinstall the pulley, the pump shaft is threaded, use a bolt and nut. Thread the bolt into the shaft and tighten the nut , this will push the pulley back on. Try to find a local auto supply that has a "loan a tool" program. They will require a refundable deposit on the tool. NEVER hammer on the pulley, it will damage the pump. (MORE)
How do you get the water pump bolt that is behind the pulley for the power steering pump loose when all other bolts are out and you pulled a muscle trying to get the pulley off?
You need to remove the entire power steering pump. There are two bolts holding it on at the 12 and 6 o'clock position. Remove these via the holes in the power steering pump pulley. (no need to remove the pulley) Push the pump to the side and you then have access to the water pump bolt. Hope this hel…ps. "G" (MORE)
look and see if there is an opening for an Allen wrench in the front of the shaft.if there is use an Allen wrench to hold the shaft and an open end wrench to turn the nut
The best way to remove a power steering pulley is to use a puller specifically made for the job. You should be able to purchase one from just about any parts store. If you don't think you will ever need such a tool again you can save yourself a few bucks by renting one. Again many parts stores have …loaner programs. You basically deposit the full price of the puller and get the money back when you return the tool. Word of warning: There are other backyard mechanics that will be trying to rent the same tool so get your name on the list early, or just buy the tool. (MORE)
a socket. iirc, 14mm. no special tool. however, if you have already removed the pump and did not loosen the nut, you will need 2 strong men and a boy to hold the pulley while the nut is loosened. the trick is to loosen the nut first, then take off the belt, etc
Answer . The pulley needs to be removed before you can extract the pump, you can get the pulley removal tool at a car parts store.
Answer . You can purchase the tool at most parts stores or from tool suppliers like Snap-on or Mac. Some parts suppliers have a tool rental program.
With a special tool called a power steering pulley remover. The same tool will also install the pulley without damage to the pump or pulley. Answer You need a special puller, depending on what make/brand/type.
Often, removing a pulley from it's shaft requires the use of a gear puller or pulley puller which is available at most any parts or tool shop. The tool looks like a bolt with claws on it and will have 2, 3, or 4 claws. A 3 or 4 claw puller is better for pulleys. To use it, make sure there are no key…s, set screws, or other retainers holding the pulley on the shaft, then put the point of the bolt to the center of the shaft (usually there is a divot for this purpose) and hook the claws around the pulley. Use a wrench to tighten the pointed bolt against the shaft until the pulley is removed (the pulley may have to restrained from turning).. Some pulleys are retained only by a bolt or nut in the center of the pulley, in which case the nut/bolt must be removed (the pulley will have to be prevented from turning). Then slide the pulley off the shaft. If the pulley is particularly stubborn, the puller tool mentioned above may still be required. (MORE)
The pully is pressed on, so you will need to remove pump from vehicle and have the correct tools to remove the pully from the pump. . I just did this today. I have a 1994 F-150 300-6. I purchased a pulley puller from an auto parts store and pulled the pulley off before removing the pump (took 2 peo…ple for me!). This also required removing the radiator fan shield to get clearance for the puller. You cannot remove the pump first because there is not clearace to remove the bolts. I chipped the pulley in a few places fighting the bolts, so be gentle. I didn't get an installer, so needless to say, I haven't put the new pump on (as far as I can see, its impossible without one). I'll update as soon as I get it on! As a side note, the pulley has to be ordered from Ford directly (unless someone is better than me...can't find it online), so again, be gentle. . I think Ford does the same as everyone else, in that the shaft is threaded, in which case you can just run a bolt, and tighten it to re-install the pulley. If not put the pulley on first, and find some very thin wrenches to tighten those bolts. In 30 years I have never pulled the pulley off on the car, so, I know it can be done. If need be bolt the brackets onto the pump before installation, then install pulley, then re-install pump.The reason you have to order pulley from Ford, is because it is not supposed to be taken off. If you want one cheaper, and quicker, go to your nearest high performanbce store. We run custom pulleys on race motors all the time. They will probably have one in stock. Dont overcomplicate things.

Loosen the bolts to the pully before removing the serpetine belt will often help. Put a wrench end on two different bolts at time to apply pressure enough to make each come loose. The final one can be tough, but screw drivers in one of the holes of the bolts already removed will help hold it still w…hile breaking the last one. Then remove the serpentine after all of the bolts are loose. (MORE)
I just changed mine. You need a small puller to get the pulley off. I still broke my pulley (plastic junk). The good news is the replacement pulley is readily available for around $15. The hoses are straight forward and easily replaced if necessary. Hope this helps.
How do you take the power steering pump off a 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix Do you have to take the pulley off?
First remove the coolant overflow container then unbolt fuse centre and push aside. Next remove the serpentine belt and put aside (note the routing). Put an oil pan under the pump. Remove the fluid line from the bottom of the pump with a stubby wrench. Remove the return hose by compressing the clip …with a pair of pliers. Allow to drain fluid as much as possible. There are two bolts that secure the pump to the block (one on the top one on the bottom). Using a deep socket line up the hole on the pulley with the bolts and remove the bottom one first then the top. Pull the pump up and out of engine bay near the firewall and strut mount (its tight but it will come out). Take the pump to your local service centre to have the pulley removed from the dead pump and installed on the new pump. Don't try to pry it you will only damage the pulley. A pulley puller/installer must be used. Installation is the reverse but is easier from the bottom as you can see the bolt holes. Top off the fluid using standard GM power steering fluid which is available at GM dealers.(requires a funnell with a long flexible neck) Replace the serpentine belt (use a new one). Reinstall coolant overflow and secure the fuse centre. Power wash the engine to get rid of any spilt fluid as it is very flamable. Start the car and with both wheels off the ground turn the wheel left to right several times. Confirm that there are no leaks. That's it drop the car and go for a test drive. (MORE)
Its pressed on and takes a power steering pulley puller. not much else works sorry
It will require a special puller and installer to do the job. The best thing to do is to go to a repair shop and have them do it.
You will need to borrow, rent or buy a special puller. Most auto parts retailers will allow you to use theirs if they thing you'll be buying the parts from them.
Before you remove the old pulley, it's best to note its position on the pump shaft, and its relation to the other pulleys. The simplest way to install the new pulley (or reinstall the old pulley) is to rent or buy a power steering pump pulley installer tool. Auto parts stores like Autozone, Kragen/O…'Reilly, etc. rent these tools, with a full refund of the rental fee when you return the tool. Sometimes you can also use a simple bolt, nut, and washer (some new pulleys may come with this bolt; use a strong washer as it may bend or break). If you're using the simple bolt approach, thread the nut onto the bolt, then slide the washer onto the bolt. Set the pulley onto the end of the pump's shaft, then thread the tool, or simple bolt, into the pump's shaft. If you're using the tool, grab the end of its bolt head with a wrench to hold it still, while you use another wrench to rotate clockwise the part of the tool that pushes the pulley onto the shaft. If you're using a simple bolt/nut/washer, grab the end of the bolt's head with a wrench to hold it still, while you tighten the nut clockwise, and the washer and nut will push the pulley onto the shaft.

That requires a special tool. A lot of part stores loan or rent tools out for those situations.
Do you need the special tools or is there another way to take off the pulley from the power steering?
You will need a special puller for the pulley on that pump. You will likely need directions from a service manual to accompany the procedure. Depending on where you live you may be able to rent the puller from a tool rental store. Using any other method will only result in damage to the pump itself.… Hope this helps! (MORE)

You have removed power steer pump pulley and all thevisible bolts in an attempt to remove the power steer pump bracket that covers 3 bolts on the water pump can not get bracket off?
You might need to remove the power steering pump, on my jeep there is a bolt behind the pump that also secures the bracket to the engine. . what you working on
The puller will not put it back on. It's made to remove it only. To reinstall the pulley requires a bolt about 3 inches long, a nut, and flat washer that fits the bolt. There are threads inside the hole on the end of the pump shaft where you insert this bolt. First place the pulley onto the shaft …and hold it in place, then install the bolt into the pump shaft. Then hold the bolt head with one wrench, while you tighten the nut and washer against the pulley with another wrench, and it will push the pulley onto the shaft. (MORE)
You will have to get a tool called a Power steering puller to remove the pulley. Then another tool that puts it back on.
One easy method is to clean the pulley and pump shaft. Put the pulley in the kitchen oven at about 250 degrees long enough to come up to temperature. Depending on the pulley material, you can go to much higher temperatures. You couldn't get a steel pulley hot enough to hurt it in a kitchen oven. For… every degree you increase the temperature of the pulley, the pulley including the shaft hole, gets larger. If possible reduce the temperature of the pump shaft. Use ice or a CO2 fire extinguisher. This makes the shaft smaller. The effect of making the pulley and it's shaft hole larger, and the shaft smaller should place you where the pulley doesn't need to be forced on the shaft Get the pulley and pump close. Dry the pump shaft. Pick up the pulley with hot pads or heavy gloves and simply slide it on the shaft by hand. This should be one swift, smooth motion and done with out stopping. Every time the pulley touches the pump shaft it will lose heat. and the shaft will gain heat until the pulley stops sliding freely. The idea of doing this this way is to avoid forcing any part of the pump shaft and maybe damaging the pump. I once used a charcoal fire and a cast iron dutch oven to install a wheel bearing on my boat trailer while camping. It worked slick. (MORE)
You need a special pulley removal tool. And you will also need a special tool to reinstall the pulley. You might be able to buy one at your local parts store.
It takes a special tool to remove the pulley and install the pulley. The tool can be rented from your local auto parts store.
If you mean the pulley and the shaft it is mounted on, Yes! A loose belt on the pulley doesn't necessarily mean anything but a need to adjust the belt tension.
It requires a power steering pulley PULLER. You can rent them at some parts stores.

Normally, it is pressed on and tightened with an Allen screw. You undo the Allen screw before you try to pull it off.
First remove the serp belt, then you will have to remove the pulley from the pump, if the pulley has no holes, other wise use a 13m socket with a 3in extension, & remove the 3 retaining bolts & loosen the lines & remove. . Pretty easy. . good luck. .
To take the power steering pump pulley off of many later model GM products requires a special puller made for that purpose. It is available from Autozone on their loaner tool program. The same set includes another puller to put the pulley back on. Some water pumps also use the same style pulley.
How do you get to the bolt located behind the power steering pulley to take out the water pump when there is no holes in the power steering pulley to remove the power steering pump?
Are you sure that bolt has to come out to change water pump? That bolt should be one of three that hold the p/s pump to the bracket. Those bolts are removed by removing the p/s pulley first. That requires a special puller to r & r the p/s pulley.
There is a puller designed just for removing and installing the pulley on the pump. Most of the major parts houses will loan it to you. You leave a deposit and get it back when you return it. I just did one yesterday, got it from O'reily's and it was only $15 which I got back when I returned it.

Preparatory procedures: These steps are not strictly necessary, but they easily pay for themselves by making the job go far more efficiently by making space for to work, rather than working in cramped quarters where it is difficult to work and see what you are doing. 1. Remove the body passenger s…ide engine compartment brace that runs over the battery to the strut tower. (3 bolts) 2. Remove the battery. (Two terminals and one hold-down bolt) 3. Remove the nut that secures the electrical junction box and let it slide down and toward the battery tray 4. Remove the two nuts that secure the coolant reservoir. With the tube still connected, swing it around to the front of the car. *You now have 6 inches or more of unobstructed space in front of the engine. Remove the old sensor: 1. Remove the serpentine belt 2. Remove the belt guard 3. Remove the power steering pump pulley. *Note: Because the bracket that holds the power steering pump is in the shape of a C, you cannot lift the pump straight up, nor can you move it toward the back of the car to escape the C because the bank 2 fuel rail is in the way as well as another bracket. You cannot rotate the pump forward to flip it out of the C bracket because because the pulley and pump together form a channel around the C bracket. Thus, you must remove the pulley. The access holes in the pulley to remove the pump bolts are of no benefit in this application. 4. Remove the only the metal line from the power steering pump with a flare nut wrench. 5. Remove the 3 bolts securing the power steering pump to the accessory bracket. 6. Rotate the pump to free it from the C bracket, and lay it aside. 7. You can now clearly see the camshaft position sensor. Part of the intake gasket will cover part of the sensor. Trim this away. Clean the debris from around the sensor to prevent dirt from entering the engine. 8. Remove the small bolt that secures the camshaft position sensor. 9. Using a long screw driver, break the sensor loose by forcing the sensor rotate in its hole, then wiggle and pry it up and out of the hole. 10. Clean the sensor hole and give it a coat of oil. 11. Un-clip the old sensor from the wiring loom. There may be a gray lock tab on the connector. You must remove or cut that out first. You will not need to reuse it. With a small screw driver, gently pry up the locking tab on the old sensor and disconnect it. 12. Install the new sensor, and reassemble everything in reverse order. (MORE)
