Default Power steering belt change [finished]

Follow up to:
[Rant] Hate the power steering belt change

I had posted about the impossible task of loosening up the Power Steering pump bolt that's located behind the pump. To break the bolt loose required a tool and he required a tool.
This required:
1. Jacking the car up waaaay high
2. Cursing on both our parts
3. PB Blaster (not sure if this helped but why not?)
4. Some weird contortions
5. More cursing
6. Finally a good whack from Mjolnir. The breaker bar on the wrench did the rest

My honest opinion after seeing Asian Thor is that his is best left to a mechanic. None of the power tools fit in there and the bolt is hard to break loose.

Yea i just changed my alternator and took a peek at the power steering side. Doesn't look fun especially without a hoist. Luckily i have one i can use, so i will tackle both belts and idler next time. Cursing is part of the job ...LOL

A hoist. A HOIST! Man that makes the job a lot easier. I didn't take any pictures of how high we raised the car but that was one of the key aspects. Hope you take some pictures. A lot of folks will appreciate the help.
