1994 Mazda B3000 Question: Replacing water pump

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 -
Answer 1
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. -

Answer 2
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. -
