So what is the trick for removing the two aft facing mount bolts for the PS pump? They are Torx E14 and are blocked by exhaust mani, A/C plumbing and other obstructions. Anyone know the removal sequence?

No relief yet. Removed to two forward facing E14 bolts but the pump is still firmly in place. Appears that I must remove those rear facing bolts too. My only hope is to remove fluid resevoir and the high pressure hose and see if I get more access or if it frees up. Bentley says thepump is on rails and slides out.

Anyone done this?

Bentley was wrong, I finally got all four E14 Torx removed. The two rear facing were the biggest PITA that I've ever had working on this vehicle. The pump is now out. Should be smooth sailing from here.
