Remove the vacuum pump/power steering pump the engine as an assembly. The power steering pump cannot be removed from the vacuum pump without first unbolting the whole assembly from the timing case. However, since you are just replacing the one bottom pod you can do that without removing the power steering pump with the whole assembly on the bench. You dont want to have to remove the power steering pump from the vacuum pump unless you are rebuilding the vacuum pump or replacing the power steering pump, you have to go through a certain procedure and it is a bit of a bear to separate the two.
