Default Urgent power steering ssue 95 se

So my PS pump or somewhere has been leaking and whining when turning, i pulled it off and cannot figure out how to get it out of the car and secondly i have a pump off the 2000 engine it came from but it doesnt have the sensor for it so how do i pull the pump from the reservoir?

I haven't done this personally, but I watched someone else change theirs.

As Dan'* illustrated write-up shows, there are two 13mm bolts behind the pulley. Remove those*, disconnect the fluid lines, and then the whole assembly (pump and reservoir) should just pull off the engine. If you're at this point and can't figure out how to separate the two, post a picture.

* My Chilton'* manual shows an additional mounting bolt near the back of the pump, but I don't believe the Bonneville has that one.

got the pump replaced, found that the sensor was loose and was leaking so hopefully this one lasts.
