There should be two. One on top and one on the bottom. I'm not 100% sure but I believe that'* the case.

Someone here should chime in soon who has done the job before.

You get to both threw the pulley. Just line up the holes, one at 12 and one at 6. I'll see if I have a write up on it.

OK, found this.

You will need a 13mm wrench, loosen the 2 bolts holding the pump on. One is located at about 12:00 and the other is about 6:00.
