I think you might be able to get a socket threw a hole in the pulley.

I tried, the only way was to unbolt the ps pump. Two 13mm bolts through the holes of the pulley at 12 and 6 on the clock. When you get it loose, lower it gently. The oil pressure sender is right below it. You don't want to drop the pump and break the sender.
