Need to Replace Power Steering Pump

Well, it looks like the power steering pump went in my 2003 Limited... has anyone done this job? The Hayne's manual says you need to take off the grill and radiator cross member. Is this really necessary? I know I'll need to remove the pulley from the old and press onto the new, but anything else I should know?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'll need to do this job today, as I have work tomorrow.

Super easy job. I did my 05 in just under an hour. In my experience you don't need to remove the fan and radiator unless your running a direct fan clutch off the pump. I do not know of any Libertys with this configuration. Just mark your bolts and work your way around. I also put a 1/16" bead of RTV on the face just outside edge of the new water pumps inaugurated gasket.

Oops.... Power steering pump is also very easy. Nothing needs to come off to get it out. Hardest part is the new pumps don't come with a pulley wheel. Either reuse your old one or just buy a new one like I did an press it on yourself. Again about an hour job. Oh and use ATF+4 fluid only.

If you do not have HD cooling(mechanical fan) it's a easy job.You will need a PS pump pulley remover/installer tool(kits are like $20 at most parts stores or rent one).

Make sure you replace the o-ring on the pressure line,should come with the pump.Also I'd stay away from a remaned pump bought at places like advance auto,auto,and even Napa,buy only OEM the extra cost is so much worth it unless you like changing out the pumps every 1-2 years.

Thanks guys... went OEM, and the job went pretty smooth. I'm hitting the "Everything that can go will go" part of my ownership. 142,xxx miles seems to mean that everything original needs to get replaced. Oh well... motor's still good. Next stop - battery.
