Hello everyone!

My EL 5L recently have some steering issue, first comes the steering wheel play, I locked the steering wheel and jack the car up, i can shake the front wheel 9 and 6 clock so easily by my hand! And the pump is making loud grinding noise, both in idle or driving, even lounder when i turing the steering wheel.. I am planning to replace the steering rack, Must i replace the pump together? someone said i have air in the fiuld, but i really not sure if the pump was gone or there are some air in the system? And how difficult to replace the power steering pump?

Thanks!

The pump can be exy to replace but the hardest part is removing the damn pulley. There is a mustang replacement pump they sell on ebay that should be fairly easily modded to suit. Don't forget to check the intermediate shaft as they are a common source of freeplay in steering too.
