1. Remove the passenger side engine mount,( remember to support the engine with a block of wood and a floor jack) and remove the belt.

2. Loosen the 2 lines coming into the pump, then there are 3 bolts to remove (look at the replacement pump for their locations). Rotate the pulley to line the large hole up with the bolts to remove them one at a time.

Installation is same as reverse, except you have to fill the reservoir and bleed the system by running the car and turning wheel lock to lock repeatedly and check fluid level while doing so.
