There is a loud whirrling sound comming from my power steering pump, especically when it is humid. Its not the pully. Is there an easy way to fix it w/out replaceing the pump? I think it may be the bearings but Im not sure.

it can be the front bearing or the punmp it self, the by pass valve could be stuck and this causes a whine in the pump.

R&R the pump only way to fix it. sorry no fix in a bottle here. but make sure it is not the belt!

check the pully for a grove or a small nick. and the belt for glazing. also spray a little soapy water on the belt while runing. if it stop's makeing noise or get's quieter it is the pully/belt.
