Honestly the hard part is getting the fan off the water pump other than that it should come out and the fan should come off with bolts i think, not sure.

use a air hammer or a fan clutch wrench that you can rent from autozone. once its loose it spins off, then remove the bolts to transfer the fan. spin back on and get it snug\tight and you are good to go. btw dont ding up your radiator or its a dent in your check book to replace.

Maintain has an R&R vid for the waterpump which shows by removing the shroud bolts, you can slide both the shroud and fan at the same time....good vid, watch it.

I found that only one of the wrenches in the autozone kit works. The one that holds on the mounting bolts to keep it stable. Then a big pipe wrench works best to get the outer retaining nut off. It's a little bit of a bee-ach but not bad.

definitely a DIY job

I took the shroud off when I was taking the fan out, they came together it was harder to do but easier to get the fan out. My buddy and I just used 2 gigantic wrenches and got it off.
