If it's anything like my 1999 Mercury Mountaineer, you will probably have to pull the fan/clutch assembly off with the fan attached. Then you can remove the fan. You can purchase a fan/clutch wrench set at a local auto parts store for around $20. The fan/clutch assembly can be removed with the fan shroud at the same time.

Does the fan and fan schroud need to come off to replace the radiator


Hold the fan clutch steady with a fan clutch wrench and disconnect the fan using a fan hub wrench. Notice the fan remains held in the engine compartment by the fan shroud...

Remove the two bolts securing the fan shroud to the radiator, with a ratchet and socket. Pull the fan shroud and fan blade assembly from the engine compartment.

There is a loud chattering noise coming from the front of the engine. Seems to be the sooling fan assembly. Could it be the water pump as well?

Sounds like the fan blade is hitting the plastic shroud around it. With the engine off and a flashlight, spin the blade by hand to see where it is hitting.
