Default How to replace crankcase pulley balancer?

I previously posted the topic "How to see number on crankcase pulley balancer?" which has background on my problem.

My next question is how to remove and install the part. I'm not familiar with working on this vehicle. Money, cold weather, and anti-street-repair rules are serious issues. If I try to drive very far to work on the car, I may get stranded if the non-OEM plastic pulley or serpentine belt breaks.

The biggest problem appears to be that an air conditioning pipe-to-hose joint may be in the way. Will the metal hose flex out of the way? Or does that pipe and hose mean I just can't do the job?

I also can't find a pulley puller from the Autozone free tool loan collection that will work. It requires a triple hook type puller in holes on a 4mm radius out from the center of the pulley. There is also a 5mm stop pin hole in the pulley.

Thanks in advance,
