How to remove the power steering pump?

im tearing into my engine for the hg. i need to remove the ps pump. but i cant remove the pulley nut. i dont have any impact wrench or other air tool for use. im stuck at the pump and need to get this engine fixed. the belt isnt keeping the pulley still, which doesnt help me with loosening the nut. what else can i do to keep the pulley from moving

x2 Don't pull the pulley. Just take the belt off then unbolt the whole assembly. Much easier.

If its slipping your not using the right wrench. also don't use the open end of the wrench thats why its stripping you should use a ratchet with the proper socket. But most important. DON'T REMOVE THE PULLEY!!!!! once you have the nut off the pully theres a good chance it still won't come off without a puller and theres no room for one there. just remove the whole assembly like Jay and Ardent said.

And use a 6pt socket, not a 12pt. Better gripping. It puts more on all the sides of the bolt head.

PS pulley just slides on there, woodruff key. Try pulling it off by hand with equal pressure or a few slight taps from a hammer.

Also please title your threads in the future relevant to your topic instead of a generic "help". Thanks.

At least that is how it is on a 22RE. Never worked on a 3.0.

He can't even get the nut off that retains the pulley.

Try a rachet and a quick hit from a hammer while holding the belt tight.

Find someone to help you.

Borrow an impact as it will take it off quick.

Try some penetrating oil like PB Blaster.

Not sure about the 3.0 but you can't pull the pump without pulling the pulley as the pulley blocks the bolt paths, as you found out.

It shouldn't be this hard to remove the ps pump or one nut.

I pulled my 3.0 pump without removing the pulley. Its not really that difficult. Its defantly tight for those few mounting bolts, but its doable. I removed my pump with the bracket from the block. right up and out.

I was past my elbows in grease before the night was over...

Yeah, I replaced mine w/o pulling the pulley. I spent an hour or so trying to remove the pulley ('cause that's what I read you had to do) before I gave up and found you can pull the whole thing out.

on 22r/e you dont need to remove the pulley. Either A) remove the bolts that hold the pump to bracket or B) remove the whole bracket.

all the bolts that hold the pump to the bracket are the same length and short. the one behind the pulley is short enough to come all the way out. the pulley shouldnt interfere with it at all, you just need to use an open ended wrench to get at it. if it's to long to come out then you got the wrong bolt in there or someone did.

and u dont need to disconnect the lines. save urself that mess.

I tried for an hour to get the PS pump off without pulling the pulley. The nut holding the pump to the block will not come out without removing the pulley. Took an impact and a pickle fork to get the pulley off. I am not sure how people are getting the bracket bolt out without taking the pulley off.

You might try removing the belt and using a strap wrench for an oil filter to hold the pulley from turning. Not sure one would fit the pulley though.


good luck.

You don't need to remove that long bolt that's behind the pulley. You only remove that if you want to separate the pump from the pump bracket. There are two nuts (maybe only one) and one bolt if I remember correctly that hold the PS pump bracket to the engine block. Remove those, then remove the pump/pulley/bracket from the engine as a single piece.
