I'm pretty sure my power steering pump is on its way out. I tried finding a thread about replacement but couldn't find one. Just curious if anyone has seen one on here. What makes me think it's going out is a new squeak I have coming from what I thought was the belt. I replaced my tensioner less than a year ago that was going out so I know it isn't that. I pulled the belt and the power steering pump pulley is the only one that doesn't spin freely and seems to bind up a bit. Sound like I'm on the right track?

I would think it wouldnt spin too freely as there is fluid in reservoir which will cause some resistance as you spin the pulley.

IIRC, you have to use a puller on the pulley to get it off, then there are several bolts plus the lines you have to remove.

Ya I kind of had the same thought about their being some resistance. Have to pull the belt and check everything again later today
