    Replacing belts on a 2003 v6. Loosened the adjuster nut on the PS pump. Exactly what other bolt(s) do I need to loosen to get the pump to budge? I've looked at several explanations on the net and still can't figure it out.:confused:

    There's one on top, that I access with an open end wrench. It sits kind of behind the top of the pulley.

    If you move the airbox out of the way, you can get a socket on the adjuster bolt a lot easier than if it's in the way.

    Actually, you don't need to remove any bolts.
    Take the airbox out. The actual tension bolt is under the pump's banjo bolt. now right behind the pulley there is nut that you must loosen to move the pump. This nut keeps the tensioner bolt from loosening. once you loosen those two you will rotate the entire pump and reservoir counter clockwise. this will allow you to remove the belt.
