I have a 97 Outback that the local garage told me will likely need a
new power steering pump in the next 5 months or so. He said it is
whining now, and will fail. He wants $575 to replace it.
Can anyone out there tell me:
1. Where is the pump? I thought it would be attached to the power
steering reservoir, but it looks like I'm mistaken
2. Is changing the pump something I can do myself? I am reasonably
competent with car repairs, but never took on something like this
before. How long will it take?
Thanks for any advice you can offer.
