If you're just replacing the impeller, you shouldn't need to remove the hosesor bracket. If you're pulling the pump completely, there are 3 machine screws holding it onto the crank pulley. Remove the 3 brass bolts(don't force them or overtighten, they'll break) and remove the plate over the pump. Use 2 small screwdrivers(it works) or get an impeller puller(better for the housing) and replace. You can use soap or Vaseline to get the impeller back in abd not dry start. Replace the gasket when you replace the impeller, they are available as a set.
