Remove the bolt holding the knuckle of the mount through the cradle (running front to rear of the car, big long bolt and nut).

Put a block of wood (wide and long, like a piece of 2x6 MINIMUM) on the jack, and use that to distribute the load while you jack the motor up by the oil pan until you can slide the mount off the motor (or slide it back far enough to be able to swap the pump).

if you do a search, you will find a wealth of information on that wp change. check out some old threads before you dive into your engine bay, you will find quite a few tips and tricks. the biggest tip though, BIll has already given you
