This is a series 2 but should still be very close. There'* a bolt under the tensioner that you may have missed. Run your hand along the edge of the pump looking for all the bolts. The pump will also stick a bit so ther emay be soem effort to crack it loose.

You will need to remove the tensioner. I suggest picking up a new set of coolant elbows. They only run about $5 for the set.

Yes, it all comes off in one piece. I believe that are 3 bolts holding it in place.
