HiCustomer to replace this belt you need too loosen the 13 mm bolt on pass side where the gear teeth are on the p/s pump bracket then there is a bolt at the point where the pump is attached to engine block, the top off it, the head is on pass side the nut is from drivers side it is hidden behind the bracket. You need a short ext on the 13 mm socket to reach it. Look straight across from the bolt head on pass side. Just loosen it. Now use large hex by gear teeth to move pump to loosen the belt. R&R belt and use hex too move pump and tighten belt. Tighten lock nut on gear drive and tighten pinch bolt.
