THERE IS A SPECIAL TOOL THAT CAN BE RENTED OR PURCHASED AT YOUR LOCAL AUTO PARTS STORE. IT CONSISTS OF A LARGE OPEN END WRENCH AND A LONG FORK-LIKE TOOL THAT GRABS THE NUTS ON THE FAN SO THAT THE WRENCH CAN LOOSEN THE LARGE NUT THAT HOLDS THE FAN CLUTCH TO THE FAN. I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR AN HONEST RATING. P.S. BE SURE TO LOOK AT THE NEW CLUTCH TO FIND OUT WHICH DIRECTION THE THREADS GO. SOME OF THESE ARE LEFTY TIGHTY, SOME ARE LEFTY LOOSEY. GOOD LUCK
