judging by your username i take it your working on an 02 model. yes you must remove the pulley while still in the truck there are two or three bolts that go thru the bracket into the pump to hold it on which are behind the pulley. only way to access them is to remove the pulley. also there is a bracket on the back side of the pump that bolts to the engine block. undo the lines fisrt of coarse and thats pretty much all there is to it.

Get a better pulley puller and must have patience as you do not want to bend the pulley. Been there, done that, on my old '76 Chevy years ago...

Use a 'power steering pump pulley puller/installer' not just a pulley puller. Not the same thing . You'll damage the pulley and you need the installer to get it back on anyway. If you try driving it on with a hammer you will ruin the pump. You can rent one at Autozone or many of the other auto parts stores.

Sure, go and make sense...lol

Very good point, totally forgot about that, which is why I ended up needing a new pulley and had to rent the "proper" tool for the job to replace it. Thanks for the reminder.
