Your question is about "removing the engine fan bolts". This make and model uses a cooling fan between the engine and radiator. You want to remove the cooling fan out right? You have removed the bolts, it is loose, and now you can't get the fan out. Is this what I am to understand?

Okay, you need to take it out the top. You'll have to maybe remove the battery or battery tray on the left. You'll have maybe a trans cooler line and upper radiator hose in the way on the right. You need to do whatever it takes to get these components out of the way to lift the cooling fan assembly up and out. It is NOT just a matter of removing the cooling fan bolts and then lift it up and out. It doesn't work that way.

Yes indeed. When you pull up on your cooling fan assembly, what is hitting? The trans cooler lines? The battery tray corner? The upper radiator hose? Is that what seems to be in your way and creating your confusion?
