I've never tried to remove a pulley on one of those, but there are problems with sockets and long arms and so on.
I assume that the front pulley is the one near the starter motor in this picture: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_kv3F0ZMQ2gk/TDbSDH4it2I/AAAAAAAAAB4/UFzv50VVI9c/s1600/DSC_0572.JPG[^] - if so, then the spanner approach may have problems, because if the belt is broken it is going to be quite difficult to stop the pulley moving while you apply leverage because you can't use the back wheel to do so.

A airgun may well be more successful because they tend to be impact driver type devices which apply a succession of small clouts to the nut rather than one long hard one. (oo-err missus)

Me? I'd take it to the shop, and see if I could watch how they did it...
If you get an email telling you that you can catch Swine Flu from tinned pork then just delete it. It's Spam.
