COOLING SYSTEM FAN 4.0L AND 4.7L ENGINES

VISCOUS FAN

REMOVAL

  1. Disconnect negative battery cable from battery

    NOTE: The 4.0L engine does not require special tool 6958 spanner wrench or adapters 8346 to remove the fan drive.

  2. The thermal viscous fan drive/fan blade assembly is attached (threaded) to water pump hub shaft Fan Blade/Viscous Fan Drive - 4.7L V-8 Engines Remove fan blade/viscous fan drive assembly from water pump by turning mounting nut counterclockwise as viewed from front. Threads on viscous fan drive are RIGHT HAND. Using spanner wrench 6958 with adapter pins 8346 (4.7L engine only) and a suitable fan wrench loosen the fan drive. Fan Blade and Drive - Removal
  3. Do not attempt to remove fan/viscous fan drive assembly from vehicle at this time.
