Is this something that I can do myself. I have the factory manuals and have pretty good mechanical skills. Anybody done it? Any suggestions? I noticed you may need a special tool to get the pulley off--Is this tool necessary?

Any opinions, input appreciated

It's easy. You should remove the whole pump, then replace out of the car, then mount back on.

Remove IC hose/pipe in front of the TB. Radiator can stay in. Get the drive belt off (14mm on tensioner, clockwise), unbolt two 14mm bolts holding the PS pump to the bracket (accessable thru the pulley holes), then just slide it out of the bracket, kinda up and to the right. Remove two vacuum hoses going to the intake manifold, and two PS fluid hoses going to the PS cooler and reservoir. Remove, replace whatever needs replaced, and assemble in reverse order. 30 minutes tops.

I'm replacing it b/c its leaking and making a god awful noise on startup when the engine is cold.

Thanks Monster......sounds like it will go smoothly.

I'll do a small writeup if its anything more than straighforward.
