I can't, for the life of me, seem to get my clutch fan off. One snapped flat head later I'm turning to you all for a word of wisdom :)

I hope you realize it is reverse thread ? Also get a bigger stronger flat blade and jam it between the water pump pulley bolts, they can be a pain to remove if it hasn't been done a long time.

Yeap was just standing on it, with another flat blade in place and it wont budge. Am doing it the reverse thread way. :cry:

OK Fixed! Used the shaft from my wrecked driver, wedged it in plus a bit of wood to stop it slipping off the pulley, and put a giant cresent on the end of my big cresent, and I got it! Also half a can of crc... :roll:

You need a 32mm spanner, bike peddle spanner is a good option with an extention for leverage. Dont forget LEFT HAND THREAD. Jam something between the pully to pump bolts and be prepared to loose the skin off your knuckles. It is thread locked on so it will be tight.

i'm using a spanner, with a big metal thing for leverage. i'm meant to push spanner towards battery yes? i already bent one screwdriver which was wedged in. i'm using a bigger screwdriver now but it just won't budge, been trying since 11am :x :x
