2008 jeep wrangler power steering pump

My power steering went out this weekend while doing donuts. I took off the belt and noticed the power steering pump pulley would slide in and out. IV read that you should need a tool to take it off? I slid it all the way out and it looked like there was threads or something that had broken off inside the pump im just not sure if there is any or what exactly is going on?? thanks

Welcome to the forum. I would say a small wheel puller is needed to remove the pulley from the shaft. Either way, sounds like you need a new pump.

There is a special puller for a power steering pump pulley. There is also a special tool to install the pulley back on pump. A power steering pump has some in and out shaft play that is normal. If the treads u see are inside the shaft they are there for the installer to screw into.
