HELP - getting off power steering belt

Hi all -

I am in my driveway trying to get the power steering belt off my 90 YJ. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to loosen up the power steering pump so I can get the belt off and the new one on. I can't find my Haynes manual either

Help me with brain freeze! PLEASE

Wrong belt...

I have two v-belts - one that goes around the water pump, the engine and the alternator. The other belt goes around the water pump, the engine and the power steering pump. The latter is the one I am referencing

I had to cut my old one off, then unbolt most of the mounting bracket bolts to get the new one on.

Nice thing about this was I was able to correct the pulley angle , while tightening it all back up.
