I haven't worked on this exact model so I am being generic. The pulley rides on a sealed bearing on the compressor shaft and should be attached to the end of the shaft by a single bolt. You would need to loosen and remove that bolt. Second, there are likely 2 or 3 tapped holes in the outer surface of the clutch to be used for pressing the clutch off the compresor shaft. You will need a bearing puller/press of some sort that will match up to these holes. Don't hammer or bang hard on the pulley or you will end up buying a new clutch assembly. The shafts are generally tapered so once it pops loose it should slide right off. There will be a key in the shaft so don't loose it either.
Start by finding a puller to do the proper job. With the belt still attached, crack the center bolt loose and then remove the belt. Remove the center bolt and bolt on the press. You might need to buy a couple bolts to match the threads on the pulley holes.
The bearing should be held in place inside the pulley by a snap ring. Remove the ring using snap ring pliers and then press out the bearing using a press or a mallet and large drift.
