first disconnect hoses coming to steering pump from reservoir so you can drop it down later on..then you get to that bolt from top of the engine,squeeze your hand in there from top and side of the engine...unscrew it and pwr steering comes out...

also i would take off that plastic pullie thats sitting on alternator housing so you can take off the 7-8 10mm bolts that hold alternator inside the alternator housing....i think there is a bolt under pullie is removed too
