97 Taurus 3.0LV6 head gaskets replacement

My neighbor has a 97 taurus that we think needs the head gaskets replaced. We started tearing the motor down but ran into a problem trying to get the Alt/PS pump bracket off. I can only see 2 bolts but i know there are more. Can the heads be removed with the motor still in the car. How does that bracket come off? Everything else looks straight forward. Does the bracket come off with the head?

There's another bolt under the bracket. Get a mirror and you'll see it. It has to come off before the head is removed. The heads can come off with the motor in the car. | Repair Guides | Engine Mechanical | Cylinder Head | AutoZone.com
