Hi,

 

Below are directions. The fan clutch tools can be rented from Autozone or Advanced Auto Parts, and they are definitely needed:

 

  1. If necessary, remove the air cleaner outlet tube.
  2. Using Fan Clutch Pulley Holder T84T-6312-C and Fan Clutch Nut Wrench T84T-6312-D for the 4.0L engine, or Holder T96T-6312-A and Wrench T96T-6312-B for the 5.0L engine, loosen the large nut attaching the clutch to the water pump hub.



Note:The manufacturer specifies that fan clutch nut is righthand thread

  1. Remove the two upper fan shroud retaining bolts. If the overflow hose is routed through the fan shroud, remove it from the shroud.
  2. Lift up on the fan shroud to disengage the lower mounting clips.
  3. Remove the fan/clutch assembly and the fan shroud together.
  4. If necessary, remove the fan-to-clutch bolts to separate the fan from the clutch.


To install:

  1. Installation is the reverse of removal. Torque the fan-to-clutch bolts to 14-19 ft. lbs. (19-26 Nm); the hub nut to 34-46 ft. lbs. (46-63 Nm). Tighten the nut in the reverse direction of removal.
