Question about 2001 Cadillac DeVille
I am assuming you are talking about the pulley on the water pump itself, in which case you have to replace the water pump.
First of all,you need the removal tool which looks like this.
You need to remove the air filter housing and ducting to gain easy access to the pump.
Remove the shield covering the pulley and belt. The belt is easily removed by levering the tensioner pulley.
The water pump is located at the lower radiator hose manifold where you will also find the thermostat.Remove the manifold cover and you will see the water pump.
Insert the removal tool over the pump making sure it is locked in position.You will need to use a breaker bar on the removal tool and turn the tool CLOCKWISE to release the pump (1/4 turn), or if you imagine the breaker bar being vertical, push towards the windscreen of your car,it takes quite a bit of force to unseat the pump hence the use of a breaker bar.
Installing the new pump does not require as much torque as removing the old one.Tighten the new pump to 73 ft.lbs. making sure it is seated properly before tightening.
Don't forget to clean out the water pump housing prior to installing the new pump and don't forget to include a new water pump gasket and housing cover gasket.
It is also a good idea to install a new thermostat while you're at it.

The pulley is an integral part of the pump. You have to remove the water housing along with the thermostat in order to gain access to the pump. You have to use a special tool to interlock the pump body and turn it counterclockwise to remove it. Remember to remove the belt first.
