Take the fan off. I've done them both ways, and it's MUCH faster to pull the visco clutch -- one bolt and some way to hold the clutch (the 300D has a slot for a piece of 1/8" wire or a 4mm allen to slip into the clutch).

Beats the dickens out of wrestling the belt around the pulleys with the fan on. Take far less time, too.
