Rover 420 (1999) power steering pump

I think my PAS pump is leaking so I need to remove it for inspection. My alternator bolts have seized (!) so I have removed the pulley (for PAS and water pump). The PAS pump is now visible but won't move. Are there further bolts at the rear, or should I use more brute force? (I tried to access this all by removing the headlight but that too won't budge! Do I need to remove the bumper too?)
Thnks for any help!

To get the headlamp out you have to remove the bumper yes.

You sure the pump is the problem. Its normaly the pipes. The pumps tend to make a horrid noise when they start to let go or you can feel the pressure slipping away through the steering wheel when you turn it.
