Any tips for removing the A/C - Power Steering bracket from a '93 2.3L? I have three bolts out and can't see any more.

What motor are you working on? Every 2.3 I've seen the A/C is on the passenger side and the power steering is on the drivers side with the alternator.

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
On my 3.0l, I believe I remember about 3 that go in from the front and 1 or 2 that go into the side of the block. I accessed the side one(s) through the wheel well. Not easy to see.

Finally got back to it. For some reason Ford thought it necessary to use 5 bolts to hold the A/C-Power Steering Pump bracket on! Two of which are REALLY hard to spot.

2.3L had big changes in '95 that stayed steady (except for the displacement change to 2.5L in 1998) until 2001.
AC moved from low on the passenger side to top of the driver side - basically swapped with the Alternator.
