Will this pulley spanner work for clutch fan removal?

Need to replace my fan cause my idler pulley broke and took a couple fan blades with it. I dont have air access so the air hammer trick wont work. Im not looking to spend a ton on a tool to hold the pulley as I remove the clutch fan assembly, so Im wondering if this one will work or if theres something else same price or cheaper that might do the trick?

I just used a good size punch about a foot long, line it up to the edge of the big nut that is in front of the pulley and hit it with a 3 pound hammer, the nut on mine was not real tight , after a couple of hits it came right off, then the fan just unbolts from the clutch assembly.
I had to order my fan so I cut off some of the other blades and was able to leave 3 blades that were exactly across from each other. I ran it like that for more than a week waiting for the new fan. It did not vibrate at all. Check your wires for the cam sensor, when my idler let go it cut into the wires on the connector and could result in problems down the road. charlie
PS. that tool will not work, that is for a pulley that is pressed on.

Tried that and unfortunately it didn't break it loose, so I need to get the tool to hold it.

The other thing you could do is get a chain wrench that will go around the pulley where the belt rides, cut an old piece of fan belt to protect the pulley and put the chain wrench on. just my thoughts===charlie

Air hammer with long bit will work like a charm.

I would like to just buy the proper tool if I can get it for about $40.. Can anyone answer the original question of whether or not the tool in the link above will work or not?

I looked in my service manuals for an 04, you need the J46406 fan clutch removal tool.
I looked online and the tool sells for 128.86 at one tool store.
I said in my first post that the tool would not work, it is for a pressed on type pulley as it states in its discription. good luck===charlie

Make sure when you are using the punch and hammer you are accounting for the reverse threads and hitting on the correct side of the nut. If I remember right you want to hit on the passeger side of the nut to get it loose after it breaks loose you should be able to just spin it off by hand. These don't get tightened on very much because the spin of the engine keeps them on. Also I think an air hammer is about 15 bucks at a Harbor Freight go get one if you can't get it off with a long punch or chisel.
