Alternatorbelt - 110 engine W126

I live in Oz.
Have a 1983 280SE WDB126 Chassis.
Has a 110 Series 6 Cyl Petrol engine 2.8 ltr. Has air-conditioning climate control
Have blown the belt which drives water pump and alternator so I am grounded.
Engine has three separate belts - Power Steering, Air-conditioning, Water pump /alternator
Have managed to remove Air Condit belt OK, and found all the bolts etc to loosen the Alternator, but I now discover I need to remove the Power Steering Pump to install new belt for Water pump/alternator as it’s the back one closest to engine block.
Does anyone have any pics and suggestions how to remove belt from Power steering pump please?
Are there any traps for young players I should be aware of? Do I need special tools?
I note the self-leveling Reservoir is right above the Power Steering Pimp - Do I need to remove this first or can I loosen the Power steering pump from underneath.

I went to buy replacement belt from a Dealer, I was quoted AU$100 but they had none anyway ex Germany (wonder why). I managed to find out the belt was a 9.5 x 980 and it was a BOSCH belt. Then went to a local 3rd party auto-shop and the closest they could offer is 11 x 990 for AU$9.90.
Will this slightly wider and longer belt operate OK - Both are BOSCH and both are serrated.

Any advices would be greatly appreciated thankyou.
