unplug the fan connector and make sure every thing is cold then twist the fan clockwise it should be lose from its main frame of the radiator then try easily to get it out without touching the oil tubes of the AC as force can damage the tube and it will cost you he patient as its too narrow hood and you will find it difficult to remove it if you have big hands

another solution for big hands get under the hood and remove the protective plate do the same and you have to get it from the hood not from down
