Why you going to remove the fan. That is more work then you need to do.

What tensioner nut did you snap off? There is no need to loosen any part of the tensioner assembly to change the belt. You simply need to put a breaker bar in the 1/2" drive square and pull toward the driver side, then engage the clip to hold the tensioner in locked position. Remove old belt, and weave new belt into place. Sounds like you may have created more work for yourself.
