I read the suggestions at the site, and decided to use a wrench on the shaft rather than a screwdriver in the fan blades as they looked fragile. I had to grind the wrench thinner, and I'm glad I used that approach as the old wheel was very tight and I had to use a channel-lock pliers to get it loose. Definitely the safest way to go. Puting the new part on was a snap. Now I have a wrench for any future repairs to this part. The wrench size is 9/32".
