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
