Gentlemen

I have the 2003 3.0 X type Auto AWD, about a month ago the power steering pump just packed up, the reservior is full, no leaks, any thoughts on what may be wrong, could it be a simple broken belt, I and secondly where the heck is the pump situated in the engine so I can look or feel?

Kind Regards

I don't think its the power steering belt itself- have the power steering pump checked- see below

The power assisted steering pump pulley is located on the right of the engine, above the steering gear.

Should only be a single drive belt for all systems excluding water pump (serpentine belt) if belt intact and fluid ok, I would suspect a faulty pump.
