My power steering pump is going out. it's leaking fluid and sounds like a rock polisher when running. I haven't replaced one before. Are there any special tools needed or things I should know before I do it?

Any tips are appreciated

It's pretty straight forward. The high pressure side has a double washer that goes on it, but should be reusable. The low pressure is just a regular hose clamp. It looks like it might be a pain to get the mount off the pump if you're not careful.

Make sure you use ATF, not power steering fluid. Also follow the refill proceedure. I've attached the relevant portion from the service manual. It's from my '05 manual, but I don't believe there were any changes for '06.
