w124- how do I remove the fan & water pump pulleys now that the bolts are out?

I'm practicing on my parts car to replace the tensioner shock, since my indie had to put a new one on my 1988 300ce before I shipped it to LA for my son. I've removed all bolts from the 3 pulleys. I searched the Forum and found a post explaining that the power steering pulley comes off if you tap it lightly, which I did. However, there's not so much tapping room around the other two pulleys, and the tapping I did today on the water pump pulley did nothing. Also, I noticed 2 small screws, either phillips or hex, on the inside of fan pulley, and I wondered if they should be removed. Thanks as always.

Some help, please; so many of you have done the tensioner replacement job that the answer, probably obvious, must be out there. Thanks.

I did this very job last week - on my M103 engine

See this thread

You " walk" the pulleys off after removing the holding bolts.
3 x 13mm bolts for the steering pump pulley, 3 13mm bolts for the water pump pulley, 4 x 8mm bolts for the fan pulley.
There are two long bolts + a short one holding the steering pump on. The two long bolts hold one end of the Y bracket on.

Sorry for being dense, but what do you mean by "walk" the pulleys off? Do I remove the 2 screws on the inside edge of the fan pulley? Thanks.

Grab hold of either side of the pulley and rock it back and forth. The pulley will eventually become loose and come off. You may need some sort of lubricant if your pulleys are so stuck or rusted(???) on.
Didn't notice two small screws on my fan pulley. Once you undo and remove the 4 x 8mm bolts then the pulley should come off the shaft without any other screws or bolts being undone.
