Does anyone know the tool that helps stop the power steering from moving while tightening the nut??enter image description here


Put a long screwdriver through one of the holes in the pulley. Brace the blade end of it against the body of the pump. Place it in a way so the pulley won't move. Ensure the end isn't against something which will break (like something plastic). Then tighten the nut. There really isn't (to my knowledge) any real "tool" to get this done. You just have to wing it.


I've found that a "strap wrench" is useful in cases like this.

  • Another thing to try is to, with the drive belt installed, press the belt further to increase the tension and tighten from there. Doesn't always work but it might help in a pinch. – Techlord Jan 5 '20 at 18:37
