Power Steering Pump Removal

I may need to do a field removal of a pwr steering pump from a '08 Focus (not mine). Is the pulley a bolt-on or press fit? Does the pulley have to come off to get the pump off the bracket? Any odd fastener sizes or types? (i.e. Torx, etc)

Thanks...

The pulley is a press fit type. You must have a puller to get it off. There aren't any weird bolts but the pulley must come off to get the pump completely out.

Okay, thanks. BTW, has the pump changed at all through the years? I know around 2006 the reservoir moved to being mounted directly overhead rather than remote (strut tower), but I think that was accomplished via external plumbing changes rather than any changes to the pump itself, correct?
