Careful with the hammer sir, going whack with hammer on the 32mm can be harmful.

Coming from experience:
First time,I broke the water pump pulley.
Second time, cleanly chopped the upper hose.
Both the times a lot of cursing but the fan didn't budge, FML.

Lesson: Get the proper tool, really easy.
Clamp on the pulley bolts.
32mm on the nut, reverse threaded and just a gentle push and no cursing.

some shots of WD40 or PBBlaster before you get into it will lessen your effort.

But please DO NOT HAMMER.
