Exclamation 1995 wrangler rio grande 2.5l

I am replacing my water pump. I have taken off the belt, the fan, and the pulley off, now there is the belt tensioner bracket which goes over part of the water pump. In order to take that bracket off there is a brace on the backside of that bracket and it looks like it is mounted to the engine block. Is there anyway to get around this, or an easier way because it seems like everyone else is replacing their water pumps easily but this is the last step for us to get the pump off. Thanks!
