Hey guys, my 2006 6s has a crack in the water pump manifold, so I need to remove the exhaust cam pulley that drives the water pump to allow access to two of the mounting bolts. I've seen the write-up over at 6crew, the poster there removed his with a two-jaw puller which mangled the pulley. He mentioned that the Ford power steering pulley puller would work, but I don't think it will... the Mazda pulley doesn't have a groove on the inside for the puller to catch onto. I've seen the Mazda special tool, it has a plate that goes behind the pulley, with two studs that pass through the cutouts in the pulley... which attach to the front portion of the puller. I called my local Mazda parts dept and they said they don't rent the tool. I forgot to ask if they sell it, but I imagine it would be too much $$$. Does anyone know of an aftermarket puller that will work? Thanks for any help!

Okay, Mazda parts dept won't sell the special tool either. Can't find it in the states, although did find it in Germany... would be about $170. Looks like the best way is to just order a new pulley, and use a jaw puller to remove the original one, bending the pulley in the process.

I know these posts were done some time ago but I just encounter this job and was able to save the pulley by using the 2/3 Jaw Puller (5 ton) from Autozone. The trick I found was to tighten the puller until you can see it very slightly bending where the fingers are grabbing. I then took my 8” long steel chisel and hammered the pulley around the back side try to drive it off. Within a few hits it broke loose and the pulley stayed undamaged.
