Steering pump pulley replacement

When the steering pump is replaced, the pulley is removed from the old one and mounted on the new pump. Also, when the grooves of the pulley are worn, cracks appear, or the pump shaft is loose, the steering pump pulley needs to be replaced.

Steering pump pulley

Steering pump pulleys are installed on the shaft differently than other pulleys. They are mounted by pressing because the diameter of the shaft is slightly larger than the diameter of the pulley opening. The pulley will have to be pulled off the power steering pump shaft with a special puller. Some pulleys are made of plastic and present an additional challenge, especially if they have become brittle. Since there are many different servos and pulleys, always consult the manufacturer’s service manual before removal.

Tool for replacing the power steering pump pulley

Never strike the drive shaft when removing and installing the pulley as this will damage the internal parts of the steering pump.

After removal, the pulley, nut, and pin are inspected for damage and wear. All worn parts are replaced.
