    1. Disconnect Ground (Hey its always number 1)
    2. Remove Belt
    3. Drain pump. I unscrewed a line from the rack.
    4. Remove pulley with puller
    5. Disconnect lines from pump and remove pump.

    6. Your new pump will come without resivor. The resivor is held on with two clips. Use a small flathead to wedge in ad prey the little tang out. Then while its stuck in there use another with a rubber mallet to slide the clip off. A vise would be handy but I did mine in the driveway.

    7. Slide the resivor on the new pump (Don't forget to replace the o-ring with the new on the new pump came with)
    8. Put it back together.
    9. Start it with the cap off after filling it up. Preferrably jack it up a little so the wheels are not touching and cycle the steering from left to right a few times make sure you cannot see any bubbles in the fluid. When they are all gone you can put the lid on and should be done. Also check for leaks..

    Doing your first time might take an hour or so but it can be done in 20-30 with the tools ready.

    Hope this helps.
    thank you!

    Thats the same prediciment I got myself in. Fluid also ended up soaking my o2 sensor plug on that side and killing the sensor.

    Best not put it off much longer. Once you replace it you'll tell yourself (gee, I should have done that a while ago)

    yea im gonna try and get to it this weekend (if it doesnt rain). I didn't know that was what caused the alt to go out I thought it was oil that was all over it and that I had an oil leak somewhere. then I get back with the alt and find the pump leaking. wish I would have known because I would have replaced them both at the same time.
