Also take a hammer to the end of the wrench for an impact type of affect.

Place a chisel on the face of the nut and give it a couple good blows towards the passenger fender

Be careful when doing this, I have seen more than one person actually cause the nut cave in slightly wher the chisel was and more or less lock the fan clutch on to the water pump.

Don't lay the chisel on a corner, lay it on the face....you can't collapse the nut if it is on the face of the nut

Big wrench, bigger hammer..hit it, break it loose, then it's just hands from there on.

Can the superchips be used to adjust the temperature at which the electric fan comes on?

Take a wrench that fits the hex nut, slip it on there and hit it with a rubber hammer counter clockwise. It will break the nut loose, so you can continue to spin it loose from the water pump. Just be ready to catch it when it finally reaches the last thread, otherwise it'll fall into your radiator and potentially cause a leak.
Edit: the clutch is attached to the fan with 4 bolts, but you have to remove the whole thing before you can get to the clutch part.

Now, go Git R Done!!
