Here we go again:
today was my day off and i have decieded to change my Water pump because the old one isn't doing much but destroying new belts. I went to the tech info and started following the instraction on how to remove the WP on 95 SSEi and earlier models. Right now I am at the stage where i want to take off the power steeting pump but have no idea how to take it off. So far i have removed all the bolts that hold the bracket which covers the last bolt (oooohh man i hate that bracket). but the bracket doesnt move abit, altough the PS is still siting on it. I will try to post a pic which i took with my camera phone but its gona be bad quality. And one more thing i didnt remove the front skirt to drain the collant because there wasn't any. Anyways please help if you can or if you have done this procedure before please tell me what how did you take off the SP.

The PS pump has just two bolts through the holes in its pulley. You can leave it attached to its hoses, and let it hang there. The bracket has a bolt to the transmission, if you hadn't found it already. Mine did the same thing, I just had to do a thorough search of the bracket for bolts.

Your WP is shredding belts? I'd take a closer look. Most pulleys that interface with the belt BACK aren't really common in the blame department for shredded belts. Just make sure it might not be something else.
