Here are the instructions for that.


Here is a trick for getting the fan off

Leave the belt on for the moment. Find the longest chisel you can and a heavy hammer. Position the chisel along the left edge of the nut and hit it sharply with the hammer. The nut will break free rather easily and then spin right off. You can tighten it the same way.

What if you don't have a long chisel? Is it a normal thread?

Then the alternative is to go buy the special tools for removing the fan. I was trying to save you some money.
