Hi Dan -

To replace the belt, loosen the pivot and mounting bolts of the power steering pump , then, using a wooden lever or equivalent, pry the pump inward to relieve the tension on the drive belt, always be careful where you locate the pry bar not to damage the component. Slip the belt off the component pulley, match up the new belt with the old belt for length and width, these measurement must be the same or problems will occur when you go to adjust the new belt.

I have attached a diagram for your use.

Hope this helps -
