Re: power steering pump reservoir

The pump is easy enough to remove, fyi. It's just a handful of bolts to remove. Much easier to access, FYI.

1) You don't give with the year. Usually helpful information...

2) Typically, no. The only way that is often possible is if the pump and reservoir are separate units. Elsewise (and especially with the Saginaw pumps that GM, AMC, and ChryCo uses...) the screws to retain the pump pass through the reservoir anyhow - so you need to remove the pump to remove the reservoir.
