Once the blower shaft is detached, the fan will be visible. Use a ratchet with a 1/2" socket to  remove the 1/2" nut securing the fan to the motor.  This nut is reverse thread so turning it clockwise will loosen it.  The fan will also need to be secured so that it does not spin as the nut is being loosened.
