How to remove Power Steering Pump Reservoir
Posted 26 December 2009 - 04:08 PM
My power steering pump is leaking. Based on the forum research, it seems like it is the o'ring between the pump and the reservoir - it is dripping from where reservoir meets the pump.
I am trying to remove the reservoir WITHOUT removing the entire pump, but no luck. I did get the bolt in the back (away from the pulley) that seems to hold the reservoir. However, I can't pry the reservoir off.
How does one remove the reservoir only to replace the O'ring or do I have to remove the entire pump?

I am planning replacing Part 55 in the diagram below...I wonder what "replacement bearing" you are talking about.
I am not overfilling the reservoir, I looked in after 6 odd months and it is getting empty!

Here is the info:
1. The bolt inside the reservoir is 12mm. Need a 6 inch extension to get to it.
2. My O-ring was shredded - just some scraps I could find ! So I had to just match based upon the space for O-ring.
3. The O-ring seems to be 3/4 of inch (to be more precise inner diameter is 5/8, outer is 7/8 and center to center is close to 3/4, with ring being 1/8 or slightly more). The ring is probably in metric. I had a ring lying around from my previous subaru work, so I didn't shop for it.
4. See the attached pics for the O-ring side on Power steering and the reservoir flipped upside down. Note that there is only one bolt.
5. Getting to the back bolt away from the pulley that holds the reservoir is a little painful. I just used a 12mm wrench.

I have a question you know if you pull the filter out of the PS pump reservoir what's what round part laying down in the reservoir?
Round part? Could you be more specific?

1-3-2- 4, The white piece that is round is a Nylon washer that goes on your tank bolt on the inside. I just dissasembled mine and it's worn at an angle. I will replace that along with the 2 o rings that are between the reservoir and the pump. One ring part 34427AA060 I got from the dealer. But there is another oring on mine that is larger and in the grove on top of the pump that several people have commented on above. Apparently some don't have that oring. Bearbalu has a good picture of the second oring on the pump itself. The smaller one actually mounts on the reservoir where it goes inside the pump.
