You have to remove the fan itself I thing its a 32mm open end wrench. You have to use a pry bar and brace the fan shaft/bolts so it doesn't move.
Once you crack it it just spins off.

The thermal fan clutch is like $50-60 just replace it. I have a good used one for $25 shipped but you might as well just replace it new.
