If you peel the round sticker off of the back side of the fan frame it exposes the end of the motor shaft. The shaft is typically secured with a cheap plastic disc that snaps into a groove in the motor shaft. Pick the disc out and the fan blade comes off easily. No prying or gouging, chipping or cracking of the fan blade at all.
