yes put some thread tape around the thread of the new hose before screwing in for much tighter seal since under fairly high pressure and when taking old hose off have clean rags ready to block the fluid from pouring out everywhere and when you have replaced hose start car check power steer oil level and look at hose to make sure not leaking if it is tighten hoses just a little at a time until leak stops

Then you don't take anything off. There will be a spring loaded idler that tensions the serpentine belt. Take a socket or long 12 point wrench and attach to the center bolt of the tensioner, then rotate the idler wheel away from the belt, take the belt off. Slowly release the spring tension of the idler.
The 2nd belt should be set up the same way.

If it is like a 94, the power steering belt is either middle or front, You might be able to sneak it past the fan, not sure, usually you have to take the fan off, Not the four bolts up front but the 3 bolts into the block holding the bracket. take the fan shroud out,2 srews/ bolts, and clips, getting the top radiator hose out of the way helps. Loosen the tension nut up front, and I believe you have a square hole for a half inch drive breaker bar, use it to move the pump left and right to loosen and tighten the belt. Then tighten the nut back up, put every back, you are all set. If the belt is in the middle, you have to take off the ac belt first. Loosen the tensioner on this belt, and wind it down, Then back up when you are done. Hope this helps.
