I am trying to change the water pump on my 1992 Crown Vic. I bought the tool to help take off the fan clutch but I can't get it to loosen. Is it possible to remove the water pump as 1 piece and then remove the fan clutch?

Do you
have the same problem?

It's easer to leave the belt on to take off the clutch. Use a hammer to hit the end of the rench counterclock wise or in the drection of engene rotation to losein. Look at the fan, and turn it to make the air move twards the engine, thats the derection the engine rotates. The quick jar seams to work better than a hit with a hand. Hit the rench with the hammer the same way you would hit it with your hand.

Yes leave the belt on and if you have to put two wrenches like the picture show...this will help so you don't slip and put a hole in your radiator...
