We have removed the three nuts on the front of the pump but it isn't coming loose. What else needs to be loosened? We are trying to do this from above, is it easier to do it from under the vehicle?
Do you

REMOVAL:
Disconnect the hoses at the pump. When the hoses are disconnected, secure the ends in a raised position to prevent leakage. Cap the ends of the hoses to prevent the entrance of dirt.
Cap the pump fittings.
Loosen the belt tensioner.
Remove the pump drive belt.
Remove the pulley with a pulley puller such as J-29785-A.
Remove the following fasteners:
6cylinder-4.3L, 8-5.0L, 8-5.7L engines: front mounting bolts
8cylinder-7.4L engine: rear brace
8cylinder-6.2L/6.5L diesel: front brace and rear mounting nuts
Lift out the pump.
