Smog Pump Bracket

So I'm trying to switch out my water pump and I go to remove the smog bracket. Everything I've read and seen has shown two bolts for this but on mine there looks to be a third one behind the spark cables. Am I seeing this right? I took the two bolts off and the bracket is very tight.

Part no. on the bracket: 10215680A

You must be missing a bolt. IIRC and its been a while, just remove the bolts and it pretty much fell off the engine block. I have mine at home that I can take a closer look at later if you need it.

Did you look at the "remove your airpump" thread or even just take a look at another bracket? That should pretty quickly show you where the missing bolt is. Here is a pic of all the parts with the bracket and may help you find the missing bolt.

Theres a bolt holding the AIR pipe to the back of the bracket . You can just see the tab coming off the pipe where the spark plug holder is. Takes a 10mm wrench por socket. There is also another bolt down behind the spark plug wires by the OPTI.

Remove those two and the bracket will pull right off.

Thanks all. We figured it out earlier. There's nothing in the Haynes manual or videos I watched about those additional bolts. Luckily my friend was able to get that back Opti bracket off. I could not fit my hands back there. Mission accomplished.
