Default Help wanted: Replacing PS Pump

My 2000 S 80 Power Steering Pump is making a bit of noise and now on cold mornings the belt starting to squeal. I am going to replace it. I am not an expert mechanic but I have done some repairs, like removing and re installing my ABS sensor, installing a new headlight, and stuff like that. Can anyone give me the PS Pump replacement procedure

Before changing the pump I'd make sure it's not just a loose or worn/dirty belt.

No, It's the pump. Been groaning for 3 years.

It is real easy. There is only 3 or 4 screws after removing the belt and it is off.

Also did you make sure the inside of the bottle is not bad causing air into the bottle causing the noise?

Thanks for your input.
You wanna expand on that?
Screws?
Also, any bleeding of the lines nessessary or any other complications.
Or, do I just remove it, reattach the hose, fill it up with PS fluid and drive away?

The screws are behind the pulley. Once the belt is off you go through the hole in the pulley and get to the screws. They are a 12MM screw.

After installing the new one start the car and run it for a few and top up as needed. Also turn the steering wheel from side to side about 8 times or so.

Ok, Harry I got it.
The used pump came today and I will put it in next week when it warms up.
The screws are bolts.
Regards,
Mike
