4. Remove the pump mounting bolts (B).
5. Cover the auto-tensioner, alternator, and A/C compressor with several shop towels to protect them from spilled power steering fluid. Disconnect the pump inlet hose (C) and pump outlet hose (D) from the pump (E), and plug them. Take care not to spill the fluid on the body or parts. Wipe off any spilled fluid at once. Do not turn the steering wheel with the pump removed.
6. Cover the opening of the pump with a piece of tape to prevent foreign material from entering the pump.
7. Install the pump in the pump bracket with the mounting bolts. Tighten the bolts to the specified torque setting.
8. onnect the pump inlet hose and pump outlet hose.
9. Install the drive belt (A).

NOTE: Note these items during drive belt installation:

" Make sure that the drive belt is properly positioned on the pulleys (B).
" Do not get power steering fluid or grease on the auto-tensioner, alternator, A/C compressor, and drive belt, or pulley faces. Clean off any fluid or grease before installation.
