Fan Blade, or Fan Clutch?

Do I need to replace the Fan Clutch or the Fan Blades them self?

Tere is sufficient resistance, and give, to the fan when rotated, I liken it to rotating a lawn mower blade.

But it does give when moved on it's other axis.

Here is the video.

I'm almost positive you need a new clutch for it. It also appears to be off balance, inspect the blades for any chips cracks or breaks...

That click does sound like the cylinders moving, but it is not, if you watch the shaft the shaft is stationary when the fan rotates.

The click is my finger hitting something, not sure what, but it hurt, I know that.
