The pulley on my power steering pump would not come off,

Customer Question
The pulley on my...

The pulley on my power steering pump would not come off, tried 3 different mechanics. 2002 Volvo V70 xc 2.4 L 5 cyl turbo . bought a replacement pump w/pulley but the new one measures 5 1/8 " across and the old is 5 6/8 will the tensioner be able to tighten the difference?

Mechanic's Assistant: When was the fluid last checked? Have you heard any whining noises while turning the wheel?

The old pump shaft is leaking need to replace

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your V70 XC yourself? What have you tried so far?

Removed old pump .pulley would not come off, could not find a pulley for the rebuild i got @ auto zone. found on on amazon that they said would fit my car but the pulley measurement is off 1/2 lnch

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Will the tensioner make up the difference or can i get a slightly smaller belt. I do not have the math skills to figure out how much smaller the belt would need to be!

Hello there,

There are a few variables to consider for the maths, but if we allow for 1/2 pulley wraparound, then your new belt needs to be about 23-25 mm shorter.

Yours appears to have a bit more than 1/2 pulley wraparound, so 30mm would be a good place to start.

Hopefully, your parts supplier will be obliging.
