I need to remove the fan clutch assembly to facilitate radiator replacement. I've acquired the spanner and 36 mm wrench to accomplish this. I've read that the fan clutch nut is right hand threaded and should be turned clockwise to remove. I've recently saw a thread on another web site that corrects this and says the nut is standard thread and should be turned counter clockwise to remove. Which is the truth. I have a 2003 Jeep Liberty Limited with 3.7L V-^.
