Thumbs up power steering pump replacement

Hello. I have an 07 G6 and I need to replace the power steering pump. I am aware of the procedure for the pulley removal but there is a bolt at the bottom of the pump that requires a crows foot wrench (reg wrench won't fit). Can anyone tell me the size of that crows foot wrench?

3.5L. I could be mistaken though. Was listening to someone else's take on the project.

As I recall - it's been a while and I tend to munge my 3.5 LZ4 with my 3.4 liter motors - there are three mounting bolts on the power steering pump, and all are accessible thru the openings in the pulley wheel.

Still, in most cases, the wheel needs to be removed in order to free the pump. And, IIRC, it's easier to remove the wheel while the pump is still bolted in place.

I had to replace the high pressure hose on my G6 a few years ago, and that's how I got familiar with the pump

^ Exactly... I've taken mine off way too many times.
