Replacing Power Steering Pump

2006 Focus ZX4 SES, 4 door sedan, 2.0, manual transmission

Does anyone have a write up on how to change out the power steering pump? I've looked everywhere but cannot find anything.

Thank you,
Robert

To add, make sure to get that little plastic/ composit gasket for the high pressure line.

Most important, prefill the reservoir and stand over it with open cans of PS fluid to fill it INSTANTLY when other person in car works steering one way and the other. You don't want that pump running out of fluid even for a second, how most get damage to the new one. The dawdling around thinking the whine is not hurting anything. WRONG!

There's a whole section here on power steering which I believe is for your model. Site navigation is not the best but hope it helps. Cheers

Where did you get it?
Autozone has a kit that can be ordered. My Ford service manual says it requires a special tool to install it. Is that necessary, and did you buy one?

Basically the ring has to prestretch to get it on, then it slowly shrinks back into original shape. If you install it quick you can screw it up as it will then be too big. A teflon seal thing. If close sized to such I've used say a smooth punch to stick the seal on and gradually work it up the shaft to get bigger and bigger until big enough to go on, don't overdo it. Look at it close before install, some will go on either way, some have a bevel or go on one way only.
