    you require a certain large wrench and a spanner wrench or something like that. if you at least get the pump swapped out you should be able to drive it without the mechanical fan. just keep an eye on the temp gauge.

    could maybe see if there is a shop that has the tools to do it. with the pump off the engine it might be easier to remove or it might be harder. i have never taken one off so don't know. i just know they looked like a pain to removed when i was looking to swap to electric fans.
