Customer Question
I’m replacing the cooling...

I’m replacing the cooling fan. Having a hard time removing the old one. Any suggestions?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Nissan?

2016 pathfinder

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Pathfinder yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. I’ve removed everything that seems to be in the way of the fan assembly. But just doesn’t seem to have enough room to get it loose and out

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not at this time.

But that doesn’t seem like it’s be an issue to pull the fan iut
Nissan Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 24 days ago

the upper radiator hose will interfere with removing it, once it is off, you can snake the fan assembly out,Tim
