Question: How do I get to the timing belt on my 1991 Plymouth Acclaim?

The Haynes manual I am attempting to follow is supposed to be for my car, but it is way too different. I am new to working on cars, and am having trouble getting to the belt. The pulley that the power steering/alternator run off of is in the way of the intermediate shaft and I can't see the markings to inspect my timing. How can i get to the belt?
