    VIDEO: Power Steering Belt Path

    Does anybody see what I see in the video? How do I correct this? Notice the path of the PS belt. I noticed the PS pump wines a little bit. Does anyone see this as an issue?

    Did You just replace the PS Pump, which brand is the pump?

    Looks like the pump is too far back

    Pump has never been replaced on this van. Its funny that I just noticed it after 8 years . It has not caused me problems that I am aware of

    Looks like the pulley is on backwards. They fit either way but cause misalignment as shown if not installed correctly. Ask me how I know.
    Just make sure the nut is properly torqued when you put it back on the correct way.

    Is it better to leave the belt on for the purposes of loosening the nut on the pulley? How would I be able to remove the nut without turning the pulley?

    Yes. You can apply pressure to the belt to help hold the pulley from turning.
