Fan Clutch

Inspect/Test/Replace

The removal procedure for fan clutch assemblies are generally the same for all types of cars. To remove the fan clutch, simply unfasten the unit from the water pump and remove the assembly from the car.

Then, take off the capscrew that holds the assembly together to separate the fan from the drive clutch.

Attach the new fan clutch to the fan blade. Then, reattach the fan assembly to the water pump. After reassembly, clean the clutch drive with a cloth soaked in solvent. Avoid dipping the clutch assembly in any type of liquid.

The coil spring type of fan clutch can not be disassembled, serviced or repaired. If it does not function properly it needs to be replaced with a new unit.
