Cooling Fan Replacement

Yes I searched, advanced for titles on the Title. Looks pretty straigthforward just glancing under the hood, mines finally shot, new one will be here tomorrow. I was able to order just the motor and I'll assume the motor shaft is keyed with a couple set screws.

Anyone have any tips or is it just a quick and easy plug-n-play? Oh yeah I realize some are doing the SPAL, but I'm ok with an OEM replacement for now.

Thanks in advance.

take the plastic cover off the top of the radiator

remove the over flow tank and place it between the engine and master brake cylinder(it stands up there perfectly)

remove 8mm bolts at top of each side of the shroud(bottom of shroud sits in 2 v-grooves)

unplug the electrical connector at top of shroud

lift shroud up, turn slightly in on passenger side and lift out

13mm nut reverse thread removes the fan blades

unplug the electrical connector at the fan motor

3 10mm bolts removes motor from shroud

thats it, very simple, shouldnt take more then 15 minutes

its just the 13mm nut holding the fan blades onto the motor, they are both keyed to lock into each other, here is photos you can see the little nubs that drop into the grooves on the motor

Somehow I knew you would be the first post.
How many have you gone through now? 9 or 10 I think. How is that waterproof one holding up?
