My car was making one hell of a whining noise, I assumed it was the altinator, been out today and removed it, once removed iv found out it's the bottom tensioner pully that's worn but upon checking other stuff there is movement in the power steering pump pully, but it doesn't leak is this normal?

Any help is appreciated guys

Thanks
Sean :)

There shouldn't be any play in the power steering pump pulley, should just spin round solidly.

Is there any roughness when you spin it round?

If not, try tighten the bolts which hold the pulley on :)

No it's not rough to spin the pully at all, just a smooth spin, foolishly I didn't even think to check if the bolts was loose -_- I'll have a look at that in the morning :)

It looks like the pulley is moving in and out without much - if any - up and down movement. It shouldn't really be doing that. That may indicate the bearings could be on the way out.

If it's not rough and doesn't leak then you should be fine for a while.

If I can find a spare pump I may have when I'm in my garage later I'll check it for movement and post the results.

Heh the movement is just in and out, doesn't move side to side one bit :s

Cool! And if there's no movement in your and you wana Dell I may take it of your hands :)
