REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1 through 8
Do NOT disconnect the A/C lines during the following procedure. Refer to General Information & Maintenance for information regarding the implications of servicing your A/C system yourself. Only an MVAC-trained, EPA-certified, automotive technician should service the A/C system or its components.
- If equipped with air conditioning, remove the A/C line clamp bolt and move the line toward the engine to provide adequate clearance for fan shroud removal.
- Drain the cooling system until the coolant level is below the upper radiator hose.
- Detach the upper radiator hose from the radiator.
- Remove all of the cooling fan shroud retaining fasteners.
- Using an open end wrench, break all of the fan/clutch mounting fasteners loose.
- Remove the water pump drive belt.
When lifting the cooling fan and shroud out of the engine compartment, take care not to damage the radiator fins.
- Remove the cooling fan/clutch mounting fasteners, then lift the fan/clutch assembly and the shroud up and out of the engine bay together.
- At this point, if necessary, the pulley may be removed from the water pump.
- If removed, position the pulley on the water pump flange.
- Lower the cooling fan/clutch assembly and shroud into the engine compartment together.
- Install the cooling fan/clutch mounting fasteners finger-tight.
- Position the cooling fan shroud properly, then install the retaining fasteners. Tighten them until snug.
- Install the water pump drive belt, then tighten the cooling fan/clutch mounting fasteners to 97 inch lbs. (11 Nm).
- Attach the upper radiator hose to the radiator.
- If equipped with air conditioning, position the A/C line against the radiator and install the line clamp bolt securely.
- Fill the cooling system, then start the engine and check for coolant leaks.
