Default Diy/ghetto/redneck r53 pulley removal?

Let's here how your yanking off that pulley (without the proper tool). I Just got my 15 pulley and I really can't justify a $80 tool to pull it. I suppose if that's all there is, then I'll have to buy one tho. Fwiw and before anyone starts bashing me, I'm a mechanic of 21 years with volkswagen. I've bought more Vw "special tools" in my time that I've used once then later realized there was a cheaper (sometimes easier) way around it.

Yea......don't monkey around with the pulley. You f'up the shaft, you are screwed.

Weld a nut onto the pulley, and turn a bolt against the supercharger shaft and it'll come right off (welded nut heats pulley and gives you a way to hold it with a wrench, and bolt pushes against shaft).

I did this when my pulley remover tool stripped and it worked very easily.
