In Reply to: Anyone rebuild a P/S pump before?? posted by JamesM on September 15, 2000 at 13:12:23:
My pump pulley is slowly starting to get gunk on it, and the underside of my airbox shows a bit of oil/dirt accumulating. It is obviously from the pump.
Anyone have any tips or things I can do "while I'm in there"?
Thanks a bunch

I recently just replaced the p/s pump. Just a question; is it worth your time to rebuild the unit rather than just replacing it with a rebuilt one?
Any rate here is what I learned.
Need to remove the air box to gain access the mounting bolts from above.
Need to remove the bottom plastic valance/ground effects panel that is under the car.
Make sure you have a puller; to remove the pulley. I was lucky, mine was able to be pulled off with my hand and a screw driver.
Replace the belt while you are replacing the unit.
Buy the proper ATF fluid and bleed the system when you are complete with the job.
