need help!!! powersteering problem renduring my car useless.

can i take the belt off my power steering pump so i can drive it 3 hours home. it started squelling really loud i killed it pulled over and there was now fluid. poured some in and it poured right back out my rac and pinion. the boot is barely even attached. i can replace my rack later ive done it before but i need to get home to be able to do it lol. it doesnt look like the powersteering belt goes to anything else. the car is a 93 with a 01 h22a4 in it.

yup you dont need power steering to drive. My friend actually just got his power steering removed from his car lol, it was funny watching him try to get out of the parking lot, he needed alot of force

ANY sort of parking is a bitttchhh, 'specially parallel parking. but literally as soon as you start moving it gets easier.

We had a similar problem in my fiance's corolla and he ended up just taking the belt off.

only the belt for now.

i wanted to see if i could live w/o PS and A/C for a new turbo manifold. having no PS is no problem where i live. but there were countless days over the summer where i was gonna kill myself since my A/C hasn't been working. not to mention how to defog the windows in the rain with no A/C is nearly impossible w/o rolling down the windows and getting the interior soaked

Defogger is the only reason I haven't thrown out my AC.
I can live with the 105 degree/90% humidity days wit the window down.

God knows how fast and badly a Honda can fog up. It's been a problem in every Lude, Accord, Civic, and Odyssey that anyone in my family and extended family has had,
