I would like to know what all is inolved in changing the power steering pump on my van. I am very mechanically inclined and just sort of wanted a starting point and what all is required to be removed.

So, where should we be looking?

The only thing that needs to be replaced is the switch for the vent control which I bought from Ford for approx. $50.00 but haven’t installed yet, I would include the part in the box with receipt with the sale. The heating / air conditioning system works fine but only comes out the defrost.
