NO POWER STEERING

2001 Pontiac Grand Am • 170,000 miles

Hello,
not gonna lie.I took my baby out to play in the rain and didnt get very far. I had the wheel cranked and lost my power steering. At first I was gonna replace the power steering pump but was then informed that the pump is driven directly off of the cam n has a failsafe to prevent damage and will actually snap the pump drive shaft. What do u guys think and will it require a whole new pump or can I just get the shaft and how difficult a change is it?

Remove the pump and check the shaft. Its not hard to check
