...the lateral load from the tension of the belt on the pulley is in all likelihood greater than what miniscule force is applied tapping the fan off. Have you ever done one with a hammer? It's easy, and much better than risking a bent a screwdriver (which generally requires a lot more force). I have done both, and will never try to "pry" one off again.
