Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.


The clutch fan has to be removed with a clutch fan wrench and it is turned counter clock wise to loosen it.



  1. Remove the fan shroud.
  2. Remove the nut using Fan Clutch Holding Tool and Fan Clutch Nut Wrench.
  3. Remove the fan and fan clutch as an assembly.
  4. Remove the bolts attaching the fan to the fan clutch, if necessary.


For installation, follow removal steps in reverse order. Tighten the fan-to-clutch bolts to 6-8 N-m (53-71 lb-in). Tighten the fan clutch assembly nut to 41-135 N-m (30-100 lb-ft).
