Only just done the belts, you would think I would remember, think I undid the 4 ribe bolts and pulled it off to make everything easier (might have been the mazda though)

Pretty sure the crank pulley doesn't have to come off.
I have an engine in garage with the timing covers off, and the cambelt still on.

The cover is split in two, and there are a couple of bolts (can't remember how many exactly) holding the lower and upper parts together.

IIRC they are a bit awkward to get to though.

Unless of course you mean the aux belt pulley for the multi v-belt ?
That may have to come off.

On my 155 you have to remove the fanbelt, remove the big idler pulley and the big top cover comes off.
The you have to remove the crank pulley to remove the cover that sits around the timing belt and balance belt.

I hope that helps, but make sure your marks line up to get the motor on TDC, before taking the crank pulley off.

This is for the 2.0 TS motor though. But I am sure they are all basically the same.

I will check if I have some pictures somewhere.

T/Spark yes, the pulley has to come off.
V6 no, it doesn't.
