We removed the belts and some of the bolts but there is a plastic casing in front of the pump I can't get to all the bolts on the water pump. Do I have to remove the belt from the power steering pump as well to access all the bolts fro the water pump

Please help on same question for 1994 Sundance 2.2 l engine. Yesterday I started to remove water pump but saw that the timing belt and crank was under the plastic housing that covers some of the water pump housing bolts so I assumed I had to remove the timing belt also. Based on reply from BMRFIXIT above, I assume that once I remove compressor bracket, I can get access to remove the plastic housing and can reove the water pump without romoving the timing belt? Is that correct? Thanks, dave
