When replacing the power steering pump on this vehicle, the pump is removed with the bracket attached. Once removed, the pump can then be separated from the bracket and replaced. I've wrapped up a small PDF file to show this, here:

Ron. how do you access this bolt that's hidden from sight. I can barely see the top of the bolt . the bolt in question goes into the block behind the power steering pump. I might be able to remove by modifying a wrench but want be able to replace ?

The easier way is to take the bracket with the pump still attached, then separate the pump after it's removed from the engine. Click here for the procedure:
