Trying to replace a water pump in a 94 Mazda B3000. The power steering/ac bracket is in the way of one of the bolts of the water pump. I have removed 2 bolts on the bracket but it still won't budge, does anyone know where I can go to get a diagram of this bracket? Thanks

I don't think you'll find a diagram of thie bracket except in a good shop manual but you don't need it. There's another bolt, you need to look harder for it. It may be recessed and not so obvious as the other two.

theres 5 bolts that hold the bracket on two of them is on the driver side by the manafold and the other three are hidden in the channels of the bracket itself i have just done the same job had to change timing chain and water pump i advise if you are changing the water pump might as well change the timing chain and all the gaskets along with the crank seal its a pain in the butt but youll be glad you did

There are 5 in all. 2 on the drivers side and 3 up front. the two hidden ones up front are behind the belt tensioner. you have to remove the tensioner to get to them.
