is it solidly locked as if the key was out and lock engaged or is it just hard to turn?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Hard to turn very hard
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
And very very light leak clear fluid
Expert:  mike switzer replied 8 months ago.
if you jack the wheels off the ground is it easier to turn?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Havnt tried
Expert:  mike switzer replied 8 months ago.
it sounds like you have possible a faulty pump or a binding steering gear. if you lift it off the ground and you still cant turn the wheel it is a steering gear. if you are able to turn it then you have a faulty pump.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Is this hard to change
Expert:  mike switzer replied 8 months ago.
on that vehicle yes very hard. and you need an alignment afterwards. i would only recommend having a local garage do the repair.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
If there is no belt can I put on myself
Expert:  mike switzer replied 8 months ago.
depends on the tools you have available. i apologize for the delay my internet crashed yesterday. it is not terribly hard to change but you do need access through the wheel well.
