03' fan clutch

does anybody know how to get the old one off? I can't for the life of me figure out how to lock the fan pulley so that I can get that large nut off!

Use a 32mm spanner wrench (open end both ends). The thread is left hand. I can't remember if you turn it clock wise to loosen the fan... The pulley needs a special too also. I'll try to find the instructions in the manual and get back with you.
