IT TAKES A "HOLDER TOOL" AND A "BIG OLE (USUALLY LONG) WRENCH"

MANY POPULAR AUTO PARTS STORES SORTA LET YOU BORROW THEM FOR FREE---BUT YOU MUST PUT UP A DEPOSIT (USUALLY THE COST OF THE TOOL) THEY RETURN YOUR $$$ WHEN YOU RETURN THE TOOLS! THEY DO THIS WITH LOTS OF "ONE TIME NEEDED TOOLS".............THIS IS HOW IT'S DONE IN S.C. ANYWAY

LIKE THIS SET IN THE LINK---USES A RATCHET HANDLE IN THE HOLDER TOOL

I THINK THE "HOLDER" ACTUALLY BACK-HOLDS THE HEADS OF 4 BOLTS AT THE SAME TIMEWHILE YOU USE THE WRENCH ON THE FAN

LET ME KNOW HOW IT GOES
