You'll need a clutch fan wrench. It's a thin, large open end wrench that is available at most part stores. Place the tool over the large bolt that holds the clutch fan to the water pump and give it a quick hit similating an impact gun. You may have to do this a couple of times, but the clutch fan will come loose and simply unscrew it.

Water Pump Leaking


the hardest part of this job is removing your fan clutch. you removed your top fan shroud, then your fan clutch, its reverse thread. take off your belt, upper radiator hose and 6 10mm bolts hold it in. clean water pump housing and put all back together. aftermarket water pumps do not come with theermostat, dealer pumps do. remove your belt tensioner from old water pump 3- 15mm bolt, two different sizes and install on your new pump. you need, 10mm socket, 15mm socket, flat head screw driver, pliers to removed hose,fan clutch tool(rent at autoparts store)
