1996 Volkswagen Cabrio, Replacing the power steering pump


Asked by Aug 16, 2016 at 02:32 PM about the 1996 Volkswagen Cabrio 2 Dr STD Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My little 1996 cabrio's power steering pump has gone bad, busted bearings inside I believe. I'm hoping to pick up a new pump and replace it myself, I'm alright under the hood but definitely no expert and from what I've heard its a difficult job. Any input on this endeavor or detailed walkthroughs would be greatly appreciated!!!
