Hey guys

got myself some ef thermos fans, and the relay kit.

im stuck at removing the old fan. i cant find anything to hold the pulley still while i crack the fan bolt.
i tried a few good quality screwdrivers and i snaped them in half. i have a big shifter on the bolt with a 1m breaker bar on top of that and it wont budge. i tried taken the whole water pump pulley off and doing it in a vice or something but i just rouned all the pulley bolts, not sure how as i have taken them off before with no issues but these are so tight its not funny.

Would it pay to have the car warm and try?

any ideas please help

Is it a 6 cylinder? You need a 32mm spanner and a special tool like this:

Instructions to make it are in service manuals. Even Gregory's.
