Go to your local auto parts retailer and buy or rent a power steering pulley puller. They usually run about $39 to do either, but since you probably will not use it much, why add another dusty tool to your box? If you rent it, the $39 is usually just a fully refundable security deposit, so you basically get to use it for free. Most of the pullers usually consist of a two section fixture that slips over the hub of the pulley, then a nut and a long shaft bolt are threaded through, and a sleeve goes over the assembly. You then turn the nut to back off the pulley. The kit should also include the installation tool, which consists of a bolt that you thread into the shaft of the pump and a nut and washer that you turn to slowly press the pulley on to the shaft. It is easier to do this job with the pump out of the car, with the pump clamped on your bench, but can be done with the pump on the car. Just be prepared to lose some skin and blood if you are not wearing gloves. The pulley is made of phenolic resin, formerly known as bakelite, and will break or chip easily, so be careful. Although the temptation will be strong to whack it with a hammer, don't give in. You can easily damage the new pulley and the pump itself.

Typically, when when this happens, the system is low on fluid and/or must be bled. Here are the procedures:
Lower the top to the full down position.

As silly as this may sound there should be a picture under your hood. It will be labeled " belt routing". If the diagram is missing then you can pick up a chilton manual at your local parts house for about $20. It also has a ton of other useful info that may surprise you. Hope this info helps. Good luck.

Click on the following direct Link. It has the Belt Diagrams you will need, complete with Removal Diagrams and Directions. It also has numerous other helpful diagrams for use.
Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with a Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
4. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.
Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with Tensioners:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them

Sounds like the pump pressure valve is not working when cold and should be replaced.> It is inside the pump where the pressure line connects to the pump.
