There is a special tool that you will need to remove the fan clutch from the water pump. Basically what this tool does is uses the four bolts that you removed to hold the pulley so that you can unthread that fan clutch assembly. Here is an illustration of these items as they come apart.

You should be able to check with your local auto part stores to see if they possibly rent a fan clutch removal tool out. I know autozone does rent this type of tool. Let me know if you still do not understand or have further trouble!
