Replace Serpentine Belt on '93 Grand Cherokee ??

I've got a 1993 Grand Cherokee with the in-line six cylinder. I'm trying to remove the old serpentine belt and replace with a new one. I don't belive this engine has the automatic tensioners, so the belth has to be removed by taking loose the power steering pump. I've found the long tensioning bolt under the power steering, and backed it nearly all the way out after loosening the lock nut under the pump. I've loosened what I thought to be the pivot bolt on the top of the pump, but still can't get the pump to move to release the old belt. What exactly is the procedure for getting this danged thing off....??? Thanks in advance for any help!

+1 to both posts above. There are 2 pivot bolts...I'm pretty sure you've already loosened the upper one...there's another one right underneath it. Also, get the Haynes's cheap and has step by step instructions with pictures on how to do this and a whole bunch of other things. Make sure you route the new belt properly!

There are 4 bolts to loosen (2 in the front& 2 in the back) and then the additional long adjuster bolt will be able to move things.
