    can you reinstall the bolts? You may have to rotate constant belt tensioner pulley to do this.

First of all ,you must use a product called loctite thread sealer this will be put on the threads as you replace the bolts ,when this product dries it forms a bond between the the threads which will not allow the bolts to vibrate out , hope this helps you , Sincerely Glenn

    the best way is get a creepy crawler and roll under the car with droplight and look up and follow the belt ,the tensioner pulley is a wheel that gives tension to the belt ,It can easily be pushed foward to take presure off the belt and be able to remove the belt ,also get yourself a chiltons auto manual for your make and model ,The book will give you pictures of you engine and will have arrows pointing to the parts you are looking for ,it will walk you step by step through the repair process , price of book around15-20 dollars ,Hope this may have helped you Sincerely Glenn

Vibration in steering wheel of a 2009 S60 Volvo?

Although this may seem highly unlikely,but it is a possibility that a bolt or some bolts have loosened up between the steering rack and the steering rod shaft from the rack, this is why there is vibration when not moving, because the power steering pump is sending pressure to the rack and at the point where the pressure from the power steering pump is received that is where the nuts or bolts have loosened up causing vibration to the steering shaft as such.Possibly also one of the diaphrams or seals in the rack is faulty causing an abnormal distribution of pressure.But I favour the first cause as mentioned. I hope I'm not wrong.

Diagram of 1999 Cavalier power steering pump

Chevrolet Cavaliers have power steering installed as standard equipment. The power steering is assisted with hydraulic pressure generated by the power steering pump. The pump circulates the fluid and makes turning the steering wheel very light and responsive to the touch. A sure sign the power steering pump is failing is when steering becomes more laborious; also look for leaking power steering fluid puddled under the car. Removing a power steering pump is not a difficult project and is the first step to repairing the power steering system.
Related Searches:

  1. Serpentine Belt
    • The serpentine belt on the front of the Cavalier's engine provides the power to operate the power steering pump. You have to first remove the belt to free the power steering pump's drive pulley. Underneath the Cavalier is a spring-tensioned pulley keeping the serpentine belt taut. Use a socket wrench to grab the center hex nut on the tension pulley and turn it so the belt becomes loose. Remove the belt from the pulley and then from the other wheels and pulleys on the engine.

    • A tube runs from the pump to the power steering assist mechanism in the Cavalier near the front axle. This hard tube has two fittings on each end for a connection. Use a box-end wrench to disconnect one end of the tube underneath the Cavalier. Be careful because some power steering fluid will leak. Just hold your finger over the hole and set a container underneath the tube and wait for the fluid to drain.

      Once the fluid finishes draining use the box-end wrench to disconnect the tube from the power steering pump. The tube is bent and twists to make its way through the engine bay from the pump to the power steering assist. There's no need to remove it from the bay. Just push it aside.

    • The power steering pump is bolted directly onto the engine block. To remove the pump, unscrew the fasteners securing it to the engine. There may or may not be thread lock compound used to seal the bolts onto the engine. If the bolts do not easily turn use some force to break the thread lock. Do not worry about doing this. Breaking thread lock is the only way to get a bolt free. Once the bolts are out, lift the pump out of the engine bay. Again, though, be careful because as you move the pump some remaining power steering fluid may drain from the access port where the tubing was connected. You might want to get a shop towel to hold over the port when moving the pump to avoid a dripping mess.

Steering wheel shakes when the Aircon unit is on but if the Aircon is off it seems okey. pls advised.

First, check the level of your power steering fluid and top up the level if low. Then adjust your serpentine belts. A loose belt may be causing the the steering wheel. To adjust your alternator belt . First , take off the negative battery cable so you do not blow an expensive fuse on the positive battery cable clamp. Facing the back of the car, reach UNDER the alternator and loosen the bolt on the bottom right side, now loosen the bolt on the adjuster block on top, you can now turn the adjuster bolt and move the alternator to change or adjust the belt.
To take off or adjust the steering pump belt on the front of the motor, you need to loosen the nut on the back side of the adjuster pulley (right side ,belt is on the left) . With the adjuster pulley loose , you can use the adjuster bolt to move the pulley forward and backward to adjust the steering pump belt tension

I'am replacing water pump 2006 grand prix,all bolts are remove but one. I can't remove it because theres a wheel pully in the way. I think it's the power steering pump help.

You may have to remove the pump...
BUT , maybe not...
The pump pully has holes in it... with the power steering belt loose or off ... turn the pully to see if the holes will allign with the bolt you are trying to remove... if not... then the power steering pump must be removed to gain access to the last bolt..

Adjusment of alternator belt

There is no adjustment, engine has a spring loaded belt tensionor. If belt is squealing check to make sure tensior moves freely, this is the small pulley below the power steering pump. If tensioner moves freely replace belt. These tensionor are very difficult to change as access to mounting bolts is very tight.

the power steering pump has a seperate adjuster bolt ont the bottom left of the pump if you loosen this off then loosen the pulley bolt it iwill move in to allow for the belt then tighten the adjuster bolt till the tension on the belt only allows for a 1/2 inch movement up or down then tighten pulley bolt
not the pump may be stiff to move at first

Do I have to remove the whole power steering to install water pump?

I think on that model you have to remove the power steering pump pulley first before you can get to the rest of the power steering pump mounting bolts.
You can rent a special puller / installer from one from your local auto parts store.
Once you have pulled the pulley and removed the pump mounting bolts,just drop the whole pump unit with the hoses attached out of the way of the water pump.
Good Luck.

Can I change the water pump on a 1997 Lesabre without removing the power steering pulley ? There is just one bolt the pulley seems to be preventing from me removing ... I was hoping maybe I could just...

disconnect the engine mount on the side and carefully raise that side of the engine, also remove the water pump pulley, u will need a PS pulley puller, u can borrow one form most discount auto parts stores for just a deposit.
