WATER PUMP

2004 Kia Sorento • 6 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 91,000 miles

Hello, my water pump recently failed on my 04 Sorento and I'm doing the work myself. I have removed the fan, radiator hoses, and all pulleys. I have removed four of the five bolts holding the large bracket to the engine block, but the fifth is blocked by the a/c bracket which appears to be a motor mount. Could you please assist me in removing this bolt? Do I need to raise the engine? Does it require a special tool perhaps? Thanks very much in advance for your help
