You can borrow the 32/36 mm thin spanner from most auto parts stores if nearby...definitely try the method suggested above first.

SMac,
So Im in the process of doing this. Tried everything to get the clutch off but no win. So I started to take the water pump out as I was going to replace it anyway.

I removed all the bolts except for the one at 6 O'clock because the pulley prevents it from sliding out all the way. I cant remove the pump - wont budge.

Any hints?

Thanks
H

Harold, There are many certified and/or old time Rover techs here, one will probably chime in with the gospel truth... If your pump wont budge at all, you may have simply missed a bolt. I cant quite remember how many there are, but some on the underside and side of the pump are bears to get to. I removed my upper fan shroud and alternator for clearance, and I remember wishing I would have removed the lower fan shroud as well.

Edit...so feeling around the WP, I believe there are 9 total bolts.

Exactly. Also, go to the land rover forum website, go to the d2 section and do a search for fan removal. I believe the members came up with all sorts of ways to remove the fan.

Zack do you have the counter wrench as well to hold the fan in place while applying torque too?

You can usually just use the mandatory absurdly large flat head to counter hold if you don't want to buy that tool.

So for me, removing the clutch fan first is no longer an option as I have disconnected the pulley and water pump screws.


I wanted to take the water pump, clutch fan and radiator fan out as one unit.

I pretty sure all the bolts are removed but the 6 o clock bolt won't completely come out cause it's stuck on the pulley.

Sucks

If I remember, there should be enough clearance to push the fan/WP/long bolt forward towards the radiator to get out.

Another option is to cut that long bolt as it sits with a hacksaw, Dremel, or reciprocating saw and replace the bolt on installation.

We have one of these. Amazon.com: Lisle LI43300 Pneumatic Fan Clutch Wrench: Automotive
its cheap and even free when yiu consider the time wasted trying different ways to go about this and damaging pulleys etc.. takes even the most stubborn fan cluch off in seconds! You need an air gun to use it. Or just find a shop that has one or should do and pay them whatever to take it off.

Sorry to hijack this thread.

So I finally got the dang water pump out with clutch fan attached.

Rather than trying to cut the fan clutch out, I was just gonna replace all these parts with new.

Anyone got a source for the pulleys for the water pump and AC?

RN has them but they are $250 total!

why do some guys show wacking it to the left from the front of the vehicle:

Blake Paulson Youtube



another to the right Rimmer Bros TV wacks it to the right:



Im doing this on a 200TDI...so to the right? any tips on holding the pulley. I have an AC pulley also so I don't see a way to use the hole to cram a screwdriver into.

ok this worked to the right on 200TDi:

On pre 03 Rover V8s including the 04 Discovery if it has a serpentine belt it opens to the left and if it has V belts it opens to the right. The first clip is a bosch V8 with a serpentine belt so it opens to the left.
