    Power steering pump renewal.

    Noticed mine was leakin&#8217; and causin&#8217; my steering to be a wee bit dodgy at times, so here&#8217;s how Ah did it&#8230;.

    Workin&#8217; from below, Ah slackened off the three bolts holding the adjuster plate on&#8230;.

    So&#8217;s Ah could remove the belt&#8230;

    [​IMG]

    Next Ah took out the 3 bolts and let the pump drop enough to get access to the hoses&#8230;

    [​IMG]

    Ah slackened off the jubilee clip on the inlet hose and then the union nut&#8230;.

    Before removing them and lettin&#8217; the fluid drain off into a bucket .

    Just a photie of the old and new pumps..

    [​IMG]

    Next, Ah tried a couple of different ways to try and remove the pulley bolts. Ended up stickin&#8217; the pulley in the vice and usin&#8217; two spanners to free one bolt off &#8230;.

    Once Ah got one bolt off, Ah stuck a thin screwdriver through the hole and jammed it so&#8217;s Ah could remove the other two bolts..

    [​IMG]

    Next Ah stuck the bracket plate in the vice and removed the bolts (notin&#8217; which way it was fitted to the old pump)&#8230;.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    stickin&#8217; it on the new pump&#8230;

    [​IMG]

    And refittin&#8217; the pulley&#8230;

    [​IMG]

    After that it was just a case of refittin&#8217; the pump and makin&#8217; sure the connections were done up nicely before fillin&#8217; up the reservoir with some nice new ATF &#8230;

    Then fillin&#8217; up the reservoir and bleedin&#8217; it all through.

    That&#8217;s it, job done ;) :D

    Just a wee update :- If after ye've bled the pump etc through properly (as per manual) and ye get a squeelin' noise and jerkin' on the steerin' wheel on full lock, chances are the pump is at fault!
    Replaced the pump today (again) and everything is just fine now;)
