You can get the 2003 steering part from the service manual from here. It is identical to what you are up against.

Power steering pump has been bad for months and now I've been told my rack and pinion is getting bad too as in wore out and I don't know whether to believe them or not how do I find out if it's bad or not

@jonathansa37344 any leaking from the rack? Any excessive play in your steering? does your car wander at cruising speed? Any vibration coming from your steering wheel?

No leaking from the rack... I've replaced the pump once before and it worked for about a week and then stopped working it kept blowing power steering fluid out of the top where the cap goes on the reservoir ive tried everything to get it to not come out the top of the reservoir... There's vibration in my steering wheel but I've got a slightly bent rim in the back so the whole car kinda vibrates it doesn't wonder and there's no play in my steering wheel other than what's normal it's REALLY HARD to turn it though some days it takes all I've got to turn the car... But I've ordered a new pump with a reservoir and pulley and a seal kit and I'm going to try to get a new hose and line set up as well @oldturkey03

@jonathansa37344 this " REALLY HARD to turn" could be your rack. Just not sure why you are blowing your steering pump. you are getting to much pressure on it but there should be a blow off valve....

andrew chuka III make sure you can get the car high enough like, 2 to 3 feet. You will have to drop the subframe, that is why you need that clearance. Don't over-tighten any of the bolts and do not loose any of the locking plate for your subframe. You'll need a special tool to release the hydraulic lines and a tie-rod tool :

Remover, Tie-Rod End

211-001 (TOOL-3290-D)

Disconnect Tool, Spring Lock Coupling

310-041 (T90T-9550-C)

"4. Disconnect the steering column shaft from the steering gear pinion extension.

1. Remove the bolt.

2. Release the steering column shaft from the pinion extension.

5. Loosen the front wheel nuts.

6. Raise and support the vehicle.

7. Remove the wheels.

8. Remove the tie-rod end retaining nuts.

9. CAUTION: When the tie-rod ends are detached from the wheel knuckles, the ball joint seals must be wrapped in cloth to protect them.Detach the tie-rod ends from the wheel knuckles.

10. Detach the stabilizer bar links from the strut and spring assemblies.

11. Disconnect the fluid cooler hose.

12. Remove the support insulator to transaxle center bolt.

13. Remove the steering gear heat shield.

14. Detach the hose support clamp.

15. Detach the power steering hoses from the steering gear.

1. Remove the bolt.

2. Rotate the clamp plate.

16. Using a suitable jack, support the crossmember.

17. Remove the six crossmember bolts

18. Lower the crossmember.

19. Remove the steering column coupling shaft and floor seal.

1. Move the floor seal upwards.

2. Remove the bolt.

20. Remove the steering gear."

Hope this will help you out, good luck.

We done all that but the steering gear still won't come out. Its not loose, we overlooked everything underneath we still don't know why its not coming out

Thank you for the steps. A video would be even better! But then most modern cars have electric rather than hydraulic power steering.

thank you
