Hey, here's the procedure, disable air bag, if equipped w/ one, disconnect the pump return hose from the reservoir and place the end in a large container. Plug the port in the reservoir. Start the engine and turn the steering wheel lock to lock several times, until fluid stops running from the hose. Turn off engine immediately. Re-attach hose. Disconnect the inlet and outlet hoses at the pump. Remove the drive belt. Remove the mounting bolts/nuts and remove pump.
Install in reverse order. Adjust belt tension,fill ps reservoir and bleed any air from the system (to bleed air from system, fill reservoir, start engine and allow to idle, turn wheel from side to side all the way several times. Shut off, fill if necessary.
. Tighten bolts to : Thru bolt 30 ft lbs., mounting nut 16 ft lbs.

Why are you trying to remove the flywheel? Do you mean the pump pulley? If you loosen the mounting bolt and the adjuster bolt of the pump, it will move so that you can remove the belt. The procedure for removing the pump is as follows:
Clamp the power steering feed hose shut so fluid loss will be minimized when the hose is disconnected.
Disconnect the feed hose and pressure line at the pump. Note the difference between the pressure and the feed hoses; the feed hose is held to the pump with a spring type clamp, and the pressure line has two bolts holding it to the pump body. Cap of plug the line and hose to prevent leakage or contamination.
Note the drive belt tension (you will have to return the belt to your estimate of that tension when you replace the pump).
Remove the pump mounting bolt and adjuster bolt. Remove the pump.
Installation is reverse of removal. Install a new o-ring on the end of the pressure line. Make sure to adjust the drivebelt tension (lever it back to where you estimate it way). Check the power steering fluid level and add some, if necessary, then bleed the power steering system (while the car is running turn the wheels all the way to the right and to the left four or five times).
Hope this is helpful.

Here is a good link. Check out the video. Changing the pump is a pretty simple task, especially if you bought the pump with a new pulley. If you only have the pump you will need a pulley removal/installation tool. Check your belts to see if they need replacing because now would be a good time to do it since they have to come off to take off the power steering pump.

if it gets louder when the lights are on that means its the alternator belt,and you will have to look under the alternator there you will find the manual tensioner you have to loosen the mounting bolt in order to tighten it with the long tensioner bolt.
