To remove the fan clutch on a Chevy Tahoe, the upper fan shroud must first be removed. Once removed, a tool is needed to hold the clutch in place to allow for the fan to be removed. The nuts must be unscrewed on the fan in a counterclockwise rotation. Remove the nuts on all side and the fan clutch will remove.

Remove the fan itself then remove the clutch from the fan
Unless the fan clutch is bad just remove it with the water pump. Otherwise it is a 36mm fan clutch wrench that most auto parts stores have for rent.

The clutch fan on a 2004 Chevy Silverado is removed by loosening the alternator bracket and pulling the drive belt. The fan's retaining bolts can then be removed and pulled from the engine.

I gave up on trying to get my fan clutch off of my 01 S-10. I took it to a garage who informed me that you need an impact wrench to do it.
