Anyone done this? 2003 X just screams if you try to turn the wheels while not moving. I'm thinking its the pump. Full of fluid, belt new, doesn't appear to be loose.


Just wondering if anyone had any tips before I dig in.

Nothing specific. My annoynace was the change in PS hoses where they changed the pressure switch. That sucked.

00/01-ish the pressure sensor was mounted in the banjo fitting of the hose. 02 and later ( I'm guessing here) the fitting changed to a plain banjo with a tap further up the hose. There was also a difference in the size of the pressure sender but don't ask me which was larger. I also want to say the new sender had a different connector.

When I tried to redo my head gaskets, I also went in with new PS hoses because they were leaking all over the place. Found out all the above on day 23 of not having a working truck.
Basically, it sucked.
