Yes i'm afraid you have to remove the pulley on most models?

POWER STEERING PUMP
Removal
Disconnect fluid return hose at reservoir and drain fluid into suitable container. Remove high pressure hose and power steering pressure switch (if equipped) from pump and drain fluid into container. Depending on vehicle, loosen belt tensioner, alternator or power steering pump adjustment bracket bolts to remove drive belt. Remove steering pump adjustment bracket bolts (if equipped).
On most models, pump pulley must be removed before pump can be removed from support bracket on engine. Remove pulley from pump using Pulley Remover (T69L-10300-B). See Fig. 3 . DO NOT use conventional type puller to remove pulley, as pulley damage will result.
Remove pump and adjustment bracket (if equipped) from support bracket. On some models, air conditioning compressor must be removed from support bracket to access power steering pump mounting bolts.
