Remove the fan shroud, there are 7 10mm bolts holding it on 3 along the top, then 2 on each side. If you have AC then you will need to inbolt a bracket that holds the hoses down. That is located right on top. You should be able to then pull the shroud up and out, it is tight. After that you remove the 4 13mm nuts holding the clutch to the water pump. After they are all removed you can pull the clutch and fan off the front of the engine. Then all you have to do is swap the fan to the new clutch and reverse the prosess.

ok the part up ^ is mostly correct. there is also a larger nut that holds the fan onto the water pump in the center. its pretty easy to see if you already got the other 13mm bolts off, but you have to remove that nut as well and it spins the pulley in the water pump. which means you need to get someone to put tension on the belt or get something so that the water pump pulley does not move.
