    Fan Clutch on a 2004 TJ 4.0l

    How do you remove this without the use of a fan wrench? In the middle of doing a body lift and trying to get the fan off (instructions said remove it with 1/2 wrench, WRONG). Sigh. Any help here would be appreciated guys.

    The fan is the viscous (spell) fan, so it is held on with the large nut, not the 1/2". I removed those and all they did was loosen the water pump pulley.

    Got it, used a pry bar and a large wrench. Awesome.

    I would have taken the shroud off and just hung it over the fan...would have been a lot easier...guess I am a couple hours too late though.
