It appears that the power steering pump can be removed by unbolting using the holes in the pulley that will provide access to the bolts, how many bolts?
Also, where is the power steering pipe retainer?
Remove the shrader valve cap, what does this do?

I have no idea why they say to remove the shrader cap, i've never done it. I just wanted to provide you with the "correct" procedure.
The power steering pipe retainer is the plastic clip that holds the lines down, this is just so you can have a little "give" with the lines to kick them aside.
Correct, use the holes in the pulley to gain access to the bolts. See diagram for bolt locations.
I have removed the 3 bolts that hold the PS pump; however, I can only move the PS pump in the verticle direction about 1 inch then interference. This is preventing me from moving the PS pump out of the way of the alternator. What is preventing the PS pump from moving freely? Its is not the attached lines that are restricting the removal of the PS Pump.
