How do you change the a/c compressor belt on this truck? Do you have to take the belt off that runs the power steering pump? If so, how do you take this belt off? I don't see a way to loosen it off like you can with the alternator belt? I've included a diagram below and my engine set-up is on the left.
Thank you in advance!

You need to take the belts off 1 at a time: p/s - alternator - a/c.

unless Im looking at the pic wrong, one belt runs both the air pump and the alt while the other strictly runs the alt. Seems to me they could have done away with one of those. must be why my 2.8L (1986) only has 3 belts.
