Power Steering Pump Removal?

I've gotten the belts off, and taken out the bolt on the back side of the PS pump. I don't know what to do next. Do i need to drain anything or what not? Hoses to remove???

Chris

Just did this after an engine swap..I'm assuming by drive belts you mean the one attached to the pump if not, you have to turn that screw to losen the belt tension. Then you have to take the bolt out of the front of that little block (its a little bolt thats a ***** to get to, after you take that out you need to remove the one long bolt that holds the pump on (i think you did that already) then you shake it back and forth and up and down and it'll slide out, getting everything back on is a complete and total *****... Why did you have to change the pump out, i'm just curious cause i did because i stripped the hole that the banjo bolt goes in and i was pouring power steering fluid everywhere....

Theres a tensioner its a long bolt that goes into a block thats about 3/4 of an inch wide (its a rectangle). If you got the belt off you've already loosened it (unless you cut the belt) now theres a bolt that goes up and down (thats the tensioner) and one that goes into the same little block right to left...its the bolt you see if your looking down at the wheel on the pump, thats right to the immediate left of the wheel. You have to remove that one, once its out you just move the pump up and down till it slides out.
