I'm at a total loss

Hello everyone. My wife's 2001 3.0 has the timing cover gasket leak. I've searched high and low here about removing the fan. What I don't understand is I have the water pump pulley stationary but the fan still turns. I have a new water pump to install. The fan screws onto the pump , right ? Looking at the new pump I don't see how the darn thing is still turning. Where the pulley bolts to the new pimp it's a solid piece. Like I said I'm lost.

Well never mind. I took the pulley bolts out and slid it forward. Then I could see was that what I thought was a problem was that the fan was spinning off, it was that loose! I feel stoopid.
