Default Question about removing Power Steering

Hey all,

My power steering is leaking and not working so well.

I bought these plugs (6 I think) that are supposed to bolt right up where the power steering was.

My question : can I just remove the power steering pump/pulley/belt, remove some fluid and put those plugs ?

I just don't want to do the whole FM method that needs to remove something from the rack.

Let me know your thoughts.

What plugs exactly?

I just drained the rack with a few lock to locks and then just looped the lines.

Perfectly fine.

Is there instructions on how to loop the lines? Did you keep the PS belt/pump ?

With the plugs, you must remove the seal from the rack. The 'FM Method' really isn't very hard, and incredibly worth it. If you don't have access to a TIG, don't worry too much about welding the shaft, but removing the seal really makes a world of difference. If you are still set on leaving the seal, you need to loop the lines so you aren't fighting air pressure in the rack.

The Dirty: has multiple links depending on your flavor.

De-power rack and pinion manual steering


no you will get rid of the pump assembly & associated belt , just take the line to the rack after getting the PS fluid out, then get it loaded with grease, then loop the line. I've been thinking of doing this some weekend.. once i get rid of other gremlins.

I didn't load it with grease just drained and lopped.

Works fine has worked fine over an entire year not hard at all. Easier than my civic was.
