I must say that detaching it entirely, or more than I did, would make things a lot easier when removing/installing the oil pan. I just didn't want to deal with detaching PS hoses or tire rods.
Thanks, that's what I was expecting regarding the stearing gear. I'm still curious about the pump though - any reason it would need to be removed?
