Getting the Wheeling Fever
Out of all you guys and girls, how many have been able to remove the old fan and shroud without removing the radiator?

Is it possible? If not whats stopping it.

Need info before I get into it..Time is limited once I start.

Thanks

I have a 2001 and it is easy, remove air-intake, loosen belt alt, remove the bolts from shroud to the rad, remove nuts from clutch fan to pulley, pull clutch forward to clear studs, work both shroud and clutch fan assembly up and out.

But you state eletric fan are you talking about the fan for the A/C ? or are you installing a Eletric fan ?

Nope. I dont think its possible. I recently removed my car's fan and fitted an electric one. Had to remove the radiator, but it was necessary as I had to make and fit brackets to hold the fan. Got rid of the shroud as well.Was'nt such a big job and worth the effort and scoring on consumption as well.

If you look at my 3 row radiator post you can install the electric fan in the shroud and when it was initially done, I didn't remove the radiator. Electric fan works great installed in the hole of the shroud. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

I have changed my timing belt without removing the radiator, I'm sure the fan had to come out for that <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />.
