Question about 2001 Volkswagen new Passat
How do you get the clutch fan off????
Usually it takes a bench vise and a pipe wrench to turn the fan off the water pump. Also I think these are reverse threads too. Its tough to break it loose either way. You will need to keep the water pump from turning and gently with increasing force break it loose. sometimes some WD-40 helps too. It does take quite a bit of OMMPF to get it off. I am not sure on your model, but be aware it may be Lefty tighty righty loosey instead of the traditional lefty loosey and righty tighty as well. Also sometimes if you take it to the place where your getting your new parts they will he-man it off for you as well, but they may not want to take the liability. Good luck to you.

generally replace clutch and pressure plate as a kit, if the flywheel it worn they can be machined, most engineering shop can return the flyweel machined the same day
