Australian Car Repair Issues? Ask an Auto Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Can you see a steel sleeve in the bracket which slides in when the bolts are tightened?
A small pry forward on the sleeves allows the pump to go in easily.
That is correct, you have to move the pump to do a timing belt.
Are you using a deep socket on the bolts?
Sometimes a mirror helps as well.
If you are having trouble with the power steering pump, are you quite sure with the timing belt installation?
I hope my advice has been of assistance to you.
