Replace fan clutch?

Ok so I as having tranny issues with my truck. I take it to dealership they say it's because the wiring harness from the fan clutch has been cut. I've heard of that issue but not when it comes to causing tranny issues. So I need to replace fan clutch? I haven't seen cut wires yet but I'm guessing splicing wouldn't be a good solution. Dealership wants over $700 to do it. Is that normal price? Also how much of a pain is it to do yourself? What do I need? What's the steps? Do I need anything besides the fan clutch parts wise? Wiring harness comes on clutch right? Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you!!!!!

Change it yourself. Isn't that hard, though the stator and shroud are a pain in the a$$. Harness is connected to the clutch so you will get a new one. Only special tool needed is a large wrench for the nut on the fan clutch. Took me about 3 hours and it was my first time doing so.

Would not pay the dealer >$700 for the work, as the part can be had for ~$250 from Diesel Filters Online: [YB-632]Motorcraft cooling fan clutch(YB632/4C3Z-8A616-AA) - Diesel Filters,Additives,brake rotors, and brake pads for Chevy, Dodge and Ford Diesel Trucks

I second the whole change it yourself. All you need is very basic tool set plus go down to your local Autozone and rent a wrench fan. Defently not worth paying someone $700.

there is nothing magical /shielded/coax/ about those wires .. if the damage is accessible a good repair is fine

I am getting ready to swap mine out to the snowplow package clutch along with the bulletproof water pump /idler and t stat just for reliability

There is a replacement wiring harness for that and it is wrapped up by metal staples or something. It prevents it from getting cut and I think its around ten bucks

it can't be a replacement harness that is internal to the clutch

I think that part is just a shield

Ok question because I ran into this question when ordering clutch. What's difference between the regular and snow plow package one? Are they simply interchangeable? An te shield is available from where? Send like a good insurance policy for ten bucks.
