    If you can get something behind the pulley (you should be able to) Cut a couple wedges (like a 2x4 somewhere in the neighborhood of 30 degree angle & wedge them in there & start tapping it aggressively (but dont beat the shit out of it) with a hammer, alternating from wedge to wedge until it pops off , prolly rhe best low impact way of getting it off...;)

    Buy puller from Harbor freight I wouldn't take a chance on breaking something, that puller is cheaper than a new pulley or what ever would crack from prying on it.

    Can't use the wedge technique because all that is behind it is thin plastic cover , I'm think bout goin to o Riley's and seeing if their loan a tool service has a puller

    You don't "need" a puller. There's nothing holding it on except years of grease and shit. I just hit mine with a deadblow a few times and it popped loose.

    Ditto on that. You don't need to wail the living piss out of it, but I used the same method, alternating around the pulley. If you improperly use a jaw style puller, you take the risk of bending the rim of the pulley, which is inherently bad my friend. Deadblow.

    Deadblow is the way to go here. A few whacks was all it needed.

    x4, used a rubber mallet on mine and hit a few times and it comes right off. It can be a little stubborn with built up crap but once it pops loose it slides off pretty easy
