Jam fan belt with a rag or two, big spanner and a lump hammer. Just make sure you hit the spanner in the direction it needs to go rather than 'into' the bearing, where you might damage it.

Remember it's LH thread ;)

Quick question, I have a Mondeo single fan, didn't think I could get a double fan combo onto the back of the radiator, how you manage it?, you have any photos?

I've just had an issue with the viscous fan spanner, i lost mine but didn't realise until the day i was taking it off, so i ended up using some old thick steel sheet we had on the farm and cut one out with the angle grinder!

it took a while to carefully get the opening to the required 32mm and i had to give it a tap to get it on the nut, but it worked well!

i don't expect it to last too long but really how often to you use them anyway? :)

and here's a pic i took after making it, basic and not pretty, but did the job!
