Take some wire and wrap through a hole on the front and wrap it around the alternator bracket. Then take a big ass wrench and get to gruntin. Its regular threads so turn to the left

You have to stop the pulley from turning some how.... some people us visegrips, I don't recommend that cause you can damage the pulley. there is a tool you can rent from autozone or napa that will do it. That wire trick sounds like it should work tho

yea it a PITA. i use a air hammer and knock it loose but i would not recommend if your not familiar with the technique or working on cars

you could even try to use an old serp belt and wrap it and hold it tight somehow (the rubber will grip really well if wrapped all the way tight)

Yep almost any of that should work for the average person, but being that you are well below average, I think you should pull the motor out and shake the fan off

it can also be done with a cold chisel and a hammer same approach as air tools just take a little more effort
