Question about 1992 GMC Sierra
(this is for power steering pumps that are pump and reservoir in same assembly) First remove the fan shroud. Then the fan clutch/fan needs to be removed. Then belt needs to come off as well. Then you need to have a pulley removal kit to remove the power steering pump pulley. Disconnect the pressure line from the back of the pump ( I think it's a 16mm fitting), then remove the return line clamp and the line itself from the pump. Remove the bolts holding the mounting bracket that sits flush on the back of the pump. Last, remove the bolts holding the pump to the bracket in which it sits. I got my pump from auto zone for about forty bucks, but found that one of the studs on the back for the mounting bracket was about a 1/4 inch longer than the original, so I had to saw off the excess in order to make it fit. Not a real problem. Replace everything in reverse of removal. Be sure not to over torque the pulley when reinstalling it to pump. It should sit flush on shaft. Be sure to bleed the air out after filling the pump with power steering fluid by turning the engine on, rev it up to about 1500 rpm's, and turn the wheel left but not to stopping point and right but not to stopping point. Do this a few times and you should see the air surface inside the reservoir. Check the fluid level after bleeding for a couple minutes and fill to specs. Cap reservoir and road test. Also make sure you install the new o-rings that come with the new pump, very important!

Don't use a standard bearing puller it doesn't work and may damage the pulley. I went to a local parts store "Salvo" and they had a Ford Power Steering Pump Pulley puller. It works. It seems like you have to put as so much force into it that something would break, but no, it just starts to come off, worth all of the 17.00 I put into it.

SOURCE: Cant remove power steering pump.
Check for any hidden mounting bolts. There may be a rear mounting bolt. Make sure you have removed all mounting bolts. Recommend buying a Chilton's manual from Autozone.
