should be 4 bolts. If it has never been removed before, most likely it is stuck to the block and needs a bit of prying off with a screw driver. However you have to be careful since there are 2 gaskets on the water pump sandwiched between the pump, steel plate and the block. The inner gasket between the power steering pump and steel plate can't be replaced easily, so if that rips, you have to figure out a way to seal it properly or just buy a new pump. If it doesn't rip, you might be able to get away with it and just replace the steel plate to block gasket.

If the water pump has never been replaced. I say it is a good time to replace it :).

Hope that helps.
