Fan Shroud Removal

Well it looks like I'm gonna have to replace my fan cluth and wanted to see if someone could give me some directions for removing the shroud.

Thanks

Remove the small guard by carefully prying the tabs up with a small screw driver, next unbolt the fan shroud and radiator hold down bolts. Carefully jiggle the shroud and tilt the radiator outwards and work the fan shroud out between the radiator and stator. Unbolt the stator from the engine, there are 4-5 (dependent on year) 15 mm bolts holding it. Unclip wire to clutch fan, loosen fan nut (it is RH thread) with 1 7/8" fan wrench. I found it easiest to use an 18" pipe wrench on the nut and give it a whack with a heavy dead blow hammer, it loosened the first time!

Change your serpentine while in there, and it's easily accessible. Many of us, (including me) leave the stator assembly off with no ill effects. I just drilled some holes in the shroud and tie wrapped the connector to my fan to support it. My concern was servicing that fan and belt if it ever let go on the road.

seen a guy cut a notch in the stator just large enough for the fan clutch to come out. he seperated the fan and the clutch in the truck. when you put the shroud back in and you'll never see the notch

its not that big of a deal to pull the stator out though

This is the only pic I have when I did my water pump. You will see the radiator on one side and the pipe wrench on the other side of it.

Thanks for the info I thought that might have been it but wasn't sure. So according to one of the prior post it won't hurt anything to leave it off.


Thanks

Mine has been M.I.A since July '09 without any issues, even while towing the 5th wheel. With it removed, it made it easier to replace the water pump again in May 2010 when I cracked and spun the pump impeller off the shaft.
