Is there a trick to removing the WP pulley off 2002 9-5 with 3.0 T? Idler and tensioner pulleys came off relatively easy, not so with the pump pulley. First time I have had the pleasure of changing out a water pump. Does the center bolt-like piece come off with pulley? Is it a bolt or part of pulley? Really no where to pry without trashing timing cover. Any ideas??

It's just 3 bolts. It might be rusted onto the pump shaft so some gentle percussive attention may be needed to get it off the hub.

If you look at parts photos you'll see that there's a center flange on the pump shaft that the pulley sits over. Tapping around the edge of the pulley usually breaks it free from that flange.
