Randall, my friend has a 2006 SRX. The oil is getting used

Customer Question

Randall, my friend has a 2006 SRX. The oil is getting used up quickly. I suspect poor circulation and cooling. I replaced the thermal fan clutch and water pump in my van and it's now a happy camper. I want to do the same with her car. What do I need to do to get that fan clutch off?

What are the special tools I see mentioned on Web pages? Fan clutch wrench?

Your SRX dose not use a fan clutch assembly and the cooling fans are replaced as an assembly just as shown in the steps. There are no special tools requires.
