I just had this problem. I used a socket extension and wedged it between the belt and lower pulley. Used my fan clutch wench and hit it with a mallet towards the passenger side

I bought on Amazon because I can use both sizes but the Rover is the 36mm. The tool with the holes holds the pulley.

You might be able to rent those tools, I know i can up here in Canada.

You can rent the tools at Advance Auto or Autozone

I bought these for the tool box. The pulley holder is a must have in my world.

All you need for the pulley holder is a piece of 1 inch strap steel from The Home Depot or Lowe's. Cut it to 18 or 20 inches and drill a hole in one end.
