Default How do you remove the Electronic Variable Orifice Component on a Power Steering Pump

I lost power steering about two week ago because of a bad pump but I am going to be picking one up this Friday but I am need to know how do I remove the EVO unit so I can reuse it because I really don't want to half to spend an extra 60 bucks so I have one with a new sensor on it. I am just wanting to replace the pump along with the pulley and just transfer the sensor over to the new pump but I am needing help on how to do that so if anyone here has any ideas on how that is done I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

Standing by also to see answer, as I'm in the same boat. Have a rebuilt pump but one shop says it doesn't have the new sensor on it. Evidently they don't want to swap it.

I myself was told the same thing by a shop so I have decided to buy one from my local auto parts store along with a new pulley and install it myself but I needing to know how to pull that sensor off of the pump before I go and buy a new one.

Those links were very helpful. I am no gonna half to see if I have all of the tools required to remove the sensor but if I don't I can see if my friend my have them. If it comes down to having to have a shop remove it from the old pump and install it on the new pump they told my they will only charge me 20$ to due all that including installing the new pulley on the new pump. So I have a few options available I can use if I am having trouble with this king of job.

For $20 I would have the shop do it.
