Customer Question
To replace the timing...

To replace the timing belt; I have the a/c compressor remove from the bracket but I need to move the bracket with power steering enough to get to the timing belt. How many bolts are there to remove from the bracket?

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your Ford. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

You will have to pull the power steering pump pulley and pump as well to get the bracket off. There are two bolts on the side of the bracket, and one that is beside the power steering pump that have to come out a swell as the one under the ac compressor.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
