FYI, this might be unique on my car (cuz it isn't confirmed on RealOEM) but... those of you asking how to take the 32mm fan clutch nut off: The pulley uses two sizes of bolts to hold it on, one set is short and black, the other is gold and long. Gold @ 12 & 6, black @ 3 & 9. You can loosen the gold bolts to give you a place to use a universal fan clutch wrench (rented one at Checker for a $50 deposit, free on return). If I had been thinking, I'd have taken pictures. Beats the hell out of beating the hell out of your fan clutch nut / wp bearings with a sledge and static friction.
