i think the nut for the fan is loose already (ive spent about 2 hrs trying to get the f**k off) ive just been using a large shifter for it lol. the shaft for the water pump is so covered in oil and crap that its too slippery to get a grip on.

Reverse thread.... use a screw driver and jam it between 2 of the 4 bolts near where the fan goes. while u undo the main fan bolt. Worked when i helped my cous change his.

You may need a special tool that bolts onto 2 of the bolts and then as above you undo it in the reverse direction Clockwise, you may have tightened it up if you have been going in the opposite direction.
