2001 impala repair

Does anybody know how to go about replacing the power steering pump and hoses for it on a 2001 impala ls? Any help would be great. I haven't had a chance to look at it, so I do not know what I am getting into. It isn't my car but I have been asked to work on it.

Thank you,

Check with the dealer. I think there was a recall on 2000-2001 for steering related problems. You may get it done for free.

The recall is for the intermediate steering shaft. I couldn't find anything else PS related. Shoot me an e-mail address to me at efisher@billheard.com and I should be able to copy and paste the pages out of a shop manual for you.

Cool

The pump is easy to change. Stay away from
A1 Cardone rebuilds though. Their quality hasn't been very
good lately. I've had to warranty 3 of them because of it.
Your best bet is AC Delco.

power steering pump

Thank you for the replies. I did forget to mention that it is for a 3.8 L. It is people like yourselves that make being in the Buick community a joy.

Again, thank you for the help,
