You will need a special tool to pull the pulley off the shaft. Some parts stores will lend you the tool, free of charge. Thank you. I had to rent the 'pulley puller', and remove the pulley prior to removing the Power Steering pump. Then replace the pump on the car and use the pulley tool to press the pulley back on to the pump shaft. There was not much room to work, even with the fan shroud loosened, but eventually I got it off and on. Again, thanks for the help.

How do you take off power steering tension pully?

I believe you are referring to the power steering pulley. The tensioner pulley is a different system altogether. You must, however, locate the tensioner pulley to remove the belt before you remove the power steering pulley.The tensioner pulley should be generally easy to access from the top of the engine bay. It is the only pulley that should be attached to an arm that is mounted somewhere close on the block. (with the engine running at idle, look for the pulley that appears to be bouncing up and down). Turn the engine off before next steps...Use a tensioner tool to move the tensioner pulley away from the belt. With tension removed from the belt, the belt should slide off of the pulleys. With the belt now removed, you will loosen the bolt that holds the power steering pulley in place.(Power steering pulley is located on the power steering gear box, locate this by finding the power steering fluid reservoir. The reservoir should sit directly above the gear box).Once the bolt is removed, the pulley should come off the shaft (with some force). You may have to use a pulley puller tool if it does not come off by hand.Installation is reverse of removal. Good luck.
