Leave the belts on it, using a metal punch, tap the clutch nut on the flat part-close to the edge to get it to turn. It should come off. Watch out because some fan clutches are reverse threaded.

Remove clutch fan dodge dakpta 4.7


This one does require a tool to loosen the fan clutch from the water pump shaft. Part of the tool holds the pulley and the other part is spanner wrench used to loosen the clutch. An important note on these fan clutches: Once you have the fan clutch off DO NOT let it lay with the rear side of the fan pointing downward as the silicone fluid that provides the "clutch" action can drain into the bearing and cause the clutch not to work. Once you have the clutch off just lean the fan and clutch against something so it is standing upright just as it is when it's bolted to the water pump until you are ready to put it back on. Hope this helps you out a bit!

Removal of the fan clutch on a f350 super duty with 7.3 deisel


I had to make a tool from a flat piece of steel to bolt to the pulley to hold it, so I could loosen the large nut of the clutch fan with a pipe wrench. You can also get a chain strap wrench to use to hold the pulley. There is a actual tool, similar to what I described, but I haven't seen it readily available yet.

How to remove a water pump


Locate water pump.. It's where the bottom radiator hose goes from the radiator. Remove any brackets or parts that are in your way. Remove water pump! Reverse procedure for installation. You have to remove the fan clutch from the water pump shaft and lift the shroud, fan and clutch all out together. remove two bolts in the center radiator support which let the radiator move forward an inch or so, loosen the fan from the clutch for a little more wiggle room to get it out. The shroud will have rubber splash shields hooked to the lower sides too, so be sure to unhook them or you will tear out the holes in the rubber shields.The fan clutch has to come off anyway because it's attached to the water pump. You don't need to remove the fan shroud. Just take out two bolts on the fan clutch and loosen the other two so you can push the clutch back a little (DON'T let the fan clutch fall). Then remove the water pump. It's a little tight, but much easier than removing the fan shroud.the only specialty tool that you will need is the water pumpt "grab" tool and the fan clutch wrench. These two items come together in one kit that you can rent from the Auto Parts store.
The "grab" tool holds the water pumpt pully firmly while you rotate the fan clutch retainer using the fan clutch wrench.

DO NOT attempt to use a break over bar or some other home-grown tool to hold the water pump pully while attempting to break the fan clutch free - you will mess up the heads of the four retainer bolts holding the pully to the water pump face.
this will help.thanks.

How do i remove the fan clutch from the water pump


I have never seen this particular engine, but fan clutches are usually left-handed thread, and you usually have to make a tool to keep the water pump from rotating.
Common tool is a piece of 1/8" x 2" steel strap/bar. You have to drill two holes such that they fit over the heads of the bolts that hold the pully on the water pump. You may need to grind the edge of your tool a little so it fits around the shaft. You don't need to bolt the tool to the pully, you just need to slip it over the bolt heads to keep the pully from rotating.
