DIY Replacing Power Steering Pump 2000 Infiniti I30

This is a DIY on how to replace a power steering pump on a 2000 Infiniti I30 

This photo above will show you how to loosen the serpentine belt for the power steering because there are two belt tensioner one is on the power steering pump the other is for the A/C and alternator - There is a top bolt that you have to loosen first that is holding the power steering pump - Then underneath it will be the adjuster 

The first thing to do is to remove the power steering hose pressure and non pressure hose 

This bolt can be a pain in the butt to break loose but its up towards the top the diagram will help you locate it - But this must be loosen before you can take the belt off 

Then to take off the pulley 

For the new pump to fit you have to push back that slider pin 

Power steering pump Auto Zone part number AAE5233

This is the power steering belt 

This is the adjuster bolt for the power steering pump

Adjusting the tension on the belt 

Put everything back the way you took it off - This is a difficult job and you must have patients cause it is tight in that area - Bolts can be on tight and you have to make sure before you can adjust it you have to have the top of the pump bolt loose and the adjuster sleeve loose you might need to bang on it to free the pump to swivel

DIY Replacement 2000 Infiniti I30 Dual Radiator Fan Motor Assembly

This is DIY for a 2000 Infiniti I30 Dual Radiator Fan Motor Assembly replacement .

If you notice that at a stop light your A/C gets hot but when you drive the A/C gets cool or your temperature rises slightly on a stop but lowers on the drive on a dual radiator fan that means the A/C condenser fan is NOT working - Both fans should come on when you have the A/C on no matter how cold your motor is that is a easy test .

Remove the clips that hold the intake and then all you have to do is remove the upper hose that is connecting to the radiator only - Then disconnect any electrical plugs - Remove the two bolts holding the assembly to the radiator 

Pull the assembly up and out - Make sure you put the heat shield from the old assembly to the new on to keep the motor from burning out from your exhaust pipe - Reconnect the plugs - Put your A/C on to make sure both fans go on 

This DIY did not take long
