Help req viscous fan removal E320

Anyone know how to remove the viscous fan on a 96 E320 with the 104 engine (petrol), there is not the usual big nut and the four bolts that hold the hub on can only be loosened so far before the heads hit the fan hub.
Any ideas much appreciated.

there has to be bolts holding the fan blades on also a larger nut for the viscus hub and one at the rear to lock it so you can remove the unit thats the only way you can remove them, take a picy so i can have a look

I have picked up the new hub from mercs today and it is a press fit on to the shaft so it looks like i will have to undo the four bolts and press old one of and refit new one on.
Will let you know tomorrow as i will be doing this and a front reline.
Meant to say book time is only 35 mins.

Just a simple cap head through the centre of the fan assembly.
