96 Explorer V8 upper idler pully

My upper idler pulley is making noise. I picked up a new one from my
Ford dealership on Saturday. It looked like a pretty simple and
straightforward repair - take the tension off the belt, back the idler
pulley bolt out and replace.

Wrong. Grrrrrrr. As I backed the bolt out, the idler pulley got
closer and closer to the fan blade. There is not enough clearance
between the bracket that the idler pulley bolts to and the fan blade.
Further, the fan blades are too close to each other to allow the
pulley to slip between the fan blades.

My shop manual states that the fan blade must be removed and that it
takes special tools to do so.

Anyone have a do-it-yourself solution?

Thanks.
