How do you pull the pulley off the power steering pump?

Is there a nut inside the shaft holding the pulley on? doesnt really look like it, unless its a fuckin torx head, and once i get a puller and get the pulley off, how do i get it on the new pump?

I do know they make a special pulley puller for it cuz I just did it the other day but I can't remember about a nut or anything. I want to say it was just pressed on so you'll need a way to press it back on.

There should be threads in the middle of the shaft. If you find out the thread size you can get a bolt and thread it in there. Use a nut and washer to push the pulley back on.

You can rent a power steering pulley puller at the "Zone". Or they'll probably let you use it there for free if you take in your old pump to pull it. I've done it a few times and it's not that hard with the right tool.

There's a tool in the kit that screws into the power steering pump shaft(not that hard, the shaft won't turn on ya.) then you tighten down a nut that pushes the pulley onto the shaft while holding the bolt that you screwed into the power steering shaft with a wrench. Just take it into any of your local AutoZones and they'll put the pulley on for you free of charge, at least we do that for customers here in Crossville all the time.
