How can I remove the power steering pump? Can I remove mtg bracket and pump together? Or do I have to pull the pullery (sheave) first?

I asked if you had a 3.0L engine you never answered there is two different V6 engine's a 3.0L and a 4.0L I posted the instruction's for the 3.0L i hope that's what you have.It doesn't say to drain the power steering fluid out before you take it off but you will have to do that it's a lot less messy that way.You can get one of those big red balled battery filler's to drain it.
