    Did you guys need a special tool to remove the fan or can you get it loose with a large wrench?

    there is a special tool for it,

    but if you have an air chisel, you can pop it off real easy

    I picked these up

    A crescent wrench would be fine - just make sure it's a large one - the spanner wrench is really handy. After I replaced the fan clutch assembly (b/c of the same issue) I ended up having to replace the water pump and then both belts and then the power steering pump and than the lower intermediate steering shaft (each problem was a separate event) - which made the purchase of these tools that much better. Justified the purchase - by using it 5 times within a year)
