Sorry about that, the pump is not bad, I guess that's why I got focused on the booster.
Here is the procedure, there is not much to it
1. Disconnect hoses at power steering pump, then plug pump ports and hoses to prevent dirt entry.2. Loosen pump adjusting bolt and remove pump drive belt.3. Remove pump to support bracket retaining bolts, then the pump.4. Reverse procedure to install.
Just use the filling procedure as outlined in the booster instructions. No bleeding needed.
