Default Replace power steering pump on my 2001 pt cruiser

Been reading how to change the power steering pump and most sites say to move the air conditioning compressor to one side so that the bottom pressure line can be removed, but none say that the air conditioning compressor needs to be disconnected. Do I have to drain the refrigerant from the AC system, or can the compressor be moved slightly to one side to get at the pressure line on the bottom of the power steering pump? pump is causing the steering wheel to pulsate when the car is first started up and driven a mile or two, then it is okay. Pump also make groaning noises sometimes. I already took off the serpentine belt, the pump pulley spins easily, seems like the bearings are okay. Any suggestions before I get into this any further? Is there a filter in the reservoir that may need changed?
