Question How to remove 1999 Mustang power steering pulley?

Has anyone ever attempted to remove the power steering pulley from a '99 Mustang?

I want to replace the power steering pump because it is just too noisy but I can't remove the pulley. I purchased an universal pulley removal from Advance Auto Parts but it would ven move the pulley a millimiter so I took it back. If I bought the pump and fluid my mecchanic charges $150 for the labor. I know it can't be to much of a difficult job when the pully is removed and I could buy myself a good pulley for half the price if I can find the right one.

By the way, I already replace the fluid and the noise is still there even though it is a little less noisy. Furthermore, if I can remove the pulley would a standard pump from Advance Auto Parts works okay?

Thank you for any advice.

The standard pump should work fine.The only way to get the pulley off is to use a puller desinged for it.The power steering pump pulley remover at Advance should do it,they are on real tight and require alot of pressure to get off.You will need that tool to reinstall the pulley also,
