What specialty tools? The only one I can think of is the 32mm open end wrench for the fan. Everything else can be removed with a screwdriver.

Are you asking which tools you need or where to find them?
I think you only need the 'specialty' fan clutch tool.

No special tools are needed for that task. The fan pulley tool isn't necessary, as you can just place a screwdriver between the pulley bolt heads to prevent it from moving while loosening the fan.
