XG350 Power Steering Pump
I have a 2002 XG350. I replaced the power steering pressure lines last year, but just recently the power steering pump went. Sine I neede many other parts as well, I ended up buying a XG350L (unknown year) that was smahed pretty bad in the back end to strip some parts off. I have removed pressure lines from the pump and unclipped the rubber hose from the reservoir, and got the pump unbloted from the engine... But I cant physically get the pump to come out. I thought removing the tensioner would give me enough room, but I still cant get it out. Other items such as exhaust, axles, upper control arm keep it from fitting out.
If anyone has done this before, can you please explain what direction is the easiest to get the PS pump out? Like, which parts should I remove to free up enough space?
Thanks in advance.
