Help removing Power Steering hose from pump

I'm trying to remove my power steering pump, but don't know how to disconnect the high-pressure hose from the pump. My Haynes manual says, "Remove the pressure line-to-pump fitting or banjo bolt, then detach the line from the pump." I'm not sure what they mean, and don't know what a banjo bolt is. All I see is a hose end with a metal casing around it going into a square looking block. Do I need some type of special tool, or am I just not looking in the right place? Also how many bolts hold the pump to the engine?

I did my hose, not sure if it's high pressure or not, but it was up by the passenger strut tower. Anyway its just a 14mm bolt holding the top part on, mine had to be air ratcheted out because it would bend the line if steady pressure was put on it, the bottom end is just bolted in in the same fashion, just with a bigger bolt, 17-21mm, I don't recall. A banjo bolt may just be the bolt with a hole in it for the PS fluid to pass through. Hope it helps, if not, I apologize.

I can't really seem to tell how my high pressure power steering hose is connected to the pump. It just looks like the tube goes into a flat looking fitting. And because I just need to get the power steering pump out of the way so I can change my timing chain, I'm going to try and just leave the hose connected and move the pump out of the way. Maybe when I get the pump loose, I can get a better look at the connector and figure out what to do with it. The connection at the top end near the strut connects to a metal tubing and it's just sreaming, turn me and I'll kink or break for sure. I'll keep you posted. Thanks.

If it's the same as the SR, which i assume it is, you need to unbolt the bottom fitting. It's a rather large bolt that holds the line in place and has a hole in it to allow fluid flow. I would suggest air tools to get it off, or take your wheel off and you can access it through there.

The top banjo fitting can be done w/o air if you have either mad skill of two people. You can fit a cresent wrench on part of the fitting to hold it in place (unfortunatley I didn't see that till after I bent up the bracket a little) and a 14 mil on the bolt.

Have fun removing your ps pump

Why are you replacing your timing chain?

I guess I need to get out there again and take another look at those connections. After reading your instructions, I know a little more about what to look for now.

My car died one day and when I took off the valve cover, the chain was spinning and the idler sprocket wasn't. Not to mention it was starting to sound like a diesel engine shortly before it died -- that classic sound of Nissan timing chain trouble. The chains may still be fine, but I'm sure the tensioners and guides are gone. It also looks like my idler sprocket may have to be replaced. So, I'm in for some holiday fun.

At lunch I went back out and looked again at my pump again. There is a large bolt sticking into back of the ps pump towards the firewall. It looks like it's made out of brass, with kind of a rounded head. It appears to go right into where the square fitting on the hose goes into the pump. Any chance that could be it. It's pretty big, I had a 19mm wrench with me and it wouldn't fit on it. Also, I'm out here in the boonies with no air tools, so my only option is to get a large flat-head wrench on it. I already have the car jacked up and the wheel off, so getting under it is not a big deal. I just have to make sure I get the right bolt.

Like I said i don't know if it's the same as the sr. The Sr's is actually bolted from below up into the pump. It's a really large bolt. It's up in the 20's I believe. Just find a standard sized one I think it's a 15/16... It fits fine.

I finally got my pump off. Actually, I was able to just remove the pump in the bracket and slip it back out of the way. Not sure I'll ever figure out how to get it back on again, but hey that's another day.

Anyway, the big brass looking bolt was the one that held the hose in place. I didn't remove it because I think I'm going to be able to get away without having to take the hose off. But if for some reason I do have to take it off later, it looks like it will be a breeze. It looks like it's bolted from the back and the best way to get at it would be from the bottom. Thanks for all your help.
