Power steering pump (move out of way) 96' 850

Post by crazy_frog » Sat Mar 13, 2010 12:14 pm

I have a CEL with a code P0172. I was looking around and I found a vacuum elbow with a hole in it that I think may be setting off the CEL. The repair I am speaking of is posted below.

http://volvospeed.com/Repair/vacuum_lines.php

What I am thinking is that I want to "move the power steering pump out of the way." Does anyone have a good write up on how this is done or some guidance they could offer?

Do I need to remove the bolts that you access through the pulley?

I don't want to disconnect any fluid lines (if i don't have to); I just want to be able to move pump out of the way so I can have better access to that vacuum elbow.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You remove the pump spacer bolt, then the guard plate, then the two bolts holding the pump on the inside of the car, then thru the pulley there are 3 bolts (feel around for them). After that just lift off.

You're welcome. That was done with the intake manifold off so I'm not sure about access with it on, but IIRC it looks very doable.

My car has 90k on it. Now I am kinda thinking maybe it would make more sense to pull the intake manifold and replace the pcv system. And while I am there do the vacuum elbow. What do you all think?

Persistence pays off. This writeup of how to remove the power steering pump should be headlined in db.
