I am trying to loosen power steering reservior in order to remove old belt for replacement. But there are one belt on the top and three belts at the bottom. Which two are pivot and lock bolts that I have to loosen please? Any help highly appreciated! Thank you.
Does yours look like this? If not, please give engine size (1.8L 1.9L etc..)

You have to loosen pivot bolt and the PS mounting bolt at base of PS unit, it can be hard to get to, remove RF tire and stone guard for better view.

Thanks for your help! It's 1.6L, and your uploaded picture is a view of the generator. What I have no clue is the pivot and mounting/lock bolts for the power steering pump. There are about 4 or 5 bolts on the back of the P/S pump, and I don't know which ones to loosen. Any more help highly appreciated!

Tension on the power steering belt is adjusted by means of an idler pulley (some models may use just a lower adjusting bracket setup-similar to alternator adjustment service procedure). Loosen the lock bolt and turn the adjusting bolt on the idler pulley until the desired tension is felt and then tighten the lock bolt.
