Hello, just curious as to how I can remove this power steering pulley. I have the power steering removal kit but there is no lip to grip on to. Is there a certain way to remove this pulley, I have searched on YouTube but couldn't come across any videos pertaining to this actual pulley.
thanks in advance.

Hi,

The only way I know to remove that pulley (I believe it is a press fit) is to use a 3 jaw puller or is to take apart the pump and remove it with the vane pump shaft. Did you purchase a new pump and it has no pulley?

Here is a portion of the directions I have. Read B in step 15.

14. REMOVE VANE PUMP HOUSING REAR
a. Remove the 4 bolts and pump housing rear from the pump housing front.
B. Remove the O-ring from the pump housing rear.
15. REMOVE W/PULLEY SHAFT SUB-ASSY
a. Using a screwdriver, remove the snap ring from the vane pump shaft.
B. Remove the w/pulley shaft sub-assy.

I attached a pic below showing the 3 jaw puller. What are you using to remove it?

Let me know.

I bought one with a pulley on it, but that rattling noise coming from the new pump is telling me something else. The belt is tight as it should so I might swap out old pulley with new pump. Thank you for the info. I was really confused as to how to remove it. But with your information it makes sense now.

Hi,

Not a problem. Let me know if you run into trouble. However, before you take the new one apart, check to see if there is play up and down or side to side in the new pump's pulley and shaft. It may be a bad pump.

Take care,
Joe
