The fan is attached to the waterpump with a 32mm nut that is reverse-threaded. Put the 32mm wrench straight down on the nut between the fan blades and the serpentine belt pulley, and give it a good whack towards the driver's side. If it does not loosen, spray the back end of the nut with some PB blaster and wait 1h until you try again.
