Power Steering Pump decided to throw in the towel.

With only 45k miles on the clock (plus fluid at good levels), the Power Steering Pump is now howling in despair. You haven't truly lived until you are in the middle of a turn and the car suddenly stops turning and the steering becomes as stiff as a young lad touching his first pair of breasts. The pucker factor was intense, to say the least, but fortunately I was close to home when it decided to give up and I muscled it to the garage.

Since I enjoy working on my cars, to a certain point at least, my plan is to buy and replace the pump myself. My problem is finding specifies on procedures, torque values, etc in ISTA. I've been browsing for over an hour and can't find any specifics on the Steering Pump itself. I've found reference to it, but not a section for it. I know it must be in there, everything else is.

There is no good reason a Steering Pump should be dying so soon, but here we are.

Any insight as to where I need to look in ISTA?

Appreciate it.

The vane pump!

I came across that a few times and ignored it as my mind was set on finding "power steering" specifically. I feel silly as I looked right past that section too.

Greatly appreciate it.

$1200 for a steering pump, ugh.
