Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Mercury Sable 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles

Very novice " mechanic" trying to save money[regret it already] I changed a water pump, tried to replace belt afterwards and cracked the pulley that is opposite of the power steering pump, I have the tools to remove and press on a new pulley but cannot locate all the bolts to remove the [block that this is located on]
I am considering removing the radiator fill tank[located across from the pulley on the left side] to possibly gain access with the tools without removing the block the pulley is on

I have removed three bolts from the area around the power steeering pump and cannot budge it
any ideas to save me?
thank you Jack
