How to remove the pulley if you don't have pulley puller?

What is the torque spec. for the pulley nut?

Get a puller $30 new -- most any Auto Parts store will rent them out for a day or two or three. You can try to pry it off, but then you could damage the shaft and most certainly will damage the pulley.

I asked dealer how to do it? Dealer called UK, and UK told them to take off the supercharger then use the factory pulley puller. There is not enough space to place the factory pulley puller.

Can anyone post the picture of the pulley puller that you use? So I can show it to the dealer

Remove the supercharger?! LOL! What kind of "medicine" are they smoking?

There are low profile pullers... that's the easiest.

I've removed stock pulleys many times without a puller, but you need to take your time. I used a plastic mallet to tap back and forth from the back side of the pulley until it lets loose. Don't hit it too hard you could damage the shaft or bearings of the supercharger. Best bet is to find a low profile puller.

THAT is an understatement!! I was there for a big installation on a client's Exige S, and took 1/2 a day to find a BSP tap in Hong Kong!

You should contact Tony Woo, I'm sure he can assist.

As far as I know, Dealer has damaged at least 2 pulley previously. And they don't have the right size puller. So, if I can get one, I will simply give them for good. Tony, you need to wait couple weeks.

Who cares about damaging the OEM pulley... it is the SUPERCHARGER that you don't want to damage! Let me know if you would like me to purchase that tool and send to you.

Absolutely NO need to remove the SC. Go in thru the wheel well (RH side), removing the plastic liner, remove belt. Note: pending on how much of size change you go with in the pulley you might need a smaller/shorter belt -- it's a tight fit but this puller works (3 set for $27):

Dealer mentioned there is not enough space to place regular puller. That's why I am searching for solutions

There is space, I've done this about 10 times. Dealer is on crack , probably the same dealer that quotes 32 hours to remove front clam when it only takes <2 hours.

Trust me, Hong Kong don't have good nor well trainned mechanic. If I have space and tools in HK like I have in Vancouver, I will do all the mods that I did in HK in my own home may take longer time, but sure I can do it right.

I have to teach dealer to install the shift cable, teach a shop to install quick shifter, teach another shop to install the oil cooler & O2 sensor, teach a audio shop to re-wire the cables, teach a body shop to mix the paint

But they are so call Lotus specialist in HK

And the so call Lotus specialist that always track in so many different evens, they don't do aligment and corner weight in shop

Shop's in HK only do installation. I mean put mods on the car, but not follow the spec. A shop striped the thread of a big bolt that hold the rear diffuser, as they used different bolt size. Then another shop did the same thing . That shop changed all my stainless steel bolt with steel bolt at the rear bottom panel + diffuser , and told me that the stock bolts are steel.

I personally changed to stainless steel bolts by myself because the noise from loose bolts long long time ago.
