    can't figure out how to remove the fan clutch on a 89 ford bronco 5 speed 2.9 engine?

    What kind of problem are you having?
    Most fan clutches have left handed threads, so the " lefty loosey, righty tighty " rule won"t work. Try turning it to the right to loosen.

Need fan clutch replaced


You can take off the 4 bolts that hold the fan on the water pump pulley carefully and you won't need to take off the pulley. You may be able to do that without removing the fan shroud, but it will add a difficulty factor if you don't. Take out the fan clutch with the fan blade still bolted on. Separate the fan blade from the clutch and install the fan blade on the new clutch unit and re install it on the engine .

Remove clutch fan dodge dakpta 4.7


This one does require a tool to loosen the fan clutch from the water pump shaft. Part of the tool holds the pulley and the other part is spanner wrench used to loosen the clutch. An important note on these fan clutches: Once you have the fan clutch off DO NOT let it lay with the rear side of the fan pointing downward as the silicone fluid that provides the "clutch" action can drain into the bearing and cause the clutch not to work. Once you have the clutch off just lean the fan and clutch against something so it is standing upright just as it is when it's bolted to the water pump until you are ready to put it back on. Hope this helps you out a bit!

How to remove a water pump


Locate water pump.. It's where the bottom radiator hose goes from the radiator. Remove any brackets or parts that are in your way. Remove water pump! Reverse procedure for installation. You have to remove the fan clutch from the water pump shaft and lift the shroud, fan and clutch all out together. remove two bolts in the center radiator support which let the radiator move forward an inch or so, loosen the fan from the clutch for a little more wiggle room to get it out. The shroud will have rubber splash shields hooked to the lower sides too, so be sure to unhook them or you will tear out the holes in the rubber shields.The fan clutch has to come off anyway because it's attached to the water pump. You don't need to remove the fan shroud. Just take out two bolts on the fan clutch and loosen the other two so you can push the clutch back a little (DON'T let the fan clutch fall). Then remove the water pump. It's a little tight, but much easier than removing the fan shroud.the only specialty tool that you will need is the water pumpt "grab" tool and the fan clutch wrench. These two items come together in one kit that you can rent from the Auto Parts store.
The "grab" tool holds the water pumpt pully firmly while you rotate the fan clutch retainer using the fan clutch wrench.

DO NOT attempt to use a break over bar or some other home-grown tool to hold the water pump pully while attempting to break the fan clutch free - you will mess up the heads of the four retainer bolts holding the pully to the water pump face.
this will help.thanks.

How to change a water pump?


You will need to remove the upper fan shroud, remove the fan clutch that is threaded onto the water pump it is easiest to get the tool for this or you can use a bar between two of the pulley bolts and use a cresent wrench on the big nut. After you remove the fan clutch there is the small hoses on the top of the water pump and the lower hose on the bottom of pump. Then there are only four bolts holding the pump to the motor. Reinstall in reverse order. Let me know if you need more help.
