Remove ALL the bolts?  No special tools needed, just 10mm and 12mm wrenches.  Unless some of the bolts have been replaced with ones with bigger heads.


Once all the bolts are loose (one can't be removed all the way, it's trapped behind the pulley) it pulls straight off.


Well, at least he gets 24 hours notice. That's more than most of us get. All most of us get is, "Mind that bus!" "What bus?" _splat_!

knock vertically on the pulley. My PO had RTV instead of a gasket so it was glued good on the front cover...
