you will need to loosen the four bolts on the pull and slide the flat wrench behind them and tighten them down to it.

using this wrench and one on the nut you can apply force in both directions / loosening the nut for the removal.

You don't need a real big wrench for the holding part just loosen up one of the smaller 13mm bolts and then use a box end wrench to go on another one of the smaller bolts and let it lock up against the bolt you loosened and hold it that way.

"Place your fan wrench on the fan nut and give it a slight tap or two, counter-click wise with a hammer. This should be enough to loosen the nut so that it can be screwed off by hand. Be careful as you approach the end and slowly pull both the fan and shroud off together. Be mindful of the radiator as you do not want to damage it by accidentally bumping into it with anything. Also, unless you are planning to replace the fan clutch at this time, be sure to set the fan in an upright position and NOT lying down. Lying the fan clutch down horizontally will cause the silicon fluid to drain into the bearing assembly and contaminate the lubricant."

Today I tried to use the stock car jack extension to hold the fan like you said. The only result was that i bent this extension.

Will it help to spray some WD40 at the thread?

I donīt know how to remove this fan. I begin to hate it. When itīs off iīll destroy it with some C4...

I doubt it will help due to the fact the fan nut tightens right up against the pulley so I doubt the WD would even get to were it needs to but I have run into a few that were that tight and the only way I got them loose was to use an air hammer with a blunt bit and hammer on the flat surface area of the nut a few seconds and then try the wrench again.I have even used the fork bit on the air hammer and butted it against the wrench like you would hit the wrench with a dead blow hammer to loosen something.Also look on your fan shroud to make sure it doesn't have backward threads.If they are backward threads it will be marked on the shroud if it isn't marked they are regular direction.Only use the air hammer if all else fails cause the only ones I have had to use that on the water pump was being replaced and pressure on the WP shaft didn't really matter.Just a word of caution!!!
