Always replace the thermostat when changing water pump. The age of the vehicle warrants replacing upper and lower radiator hoses too.

Need to take the fan off to replace the water pump. How is that done? Which way are the threads?

You didn't indicate what engine your Explorer is equipped with, so this is general information.

  • You will need this type of special tool set to hold the fan clutch, and loosen the nut.
  • The specification of fan clutch nut thread direction should be stamped into the fan shroud plastic near the hood latch.
  • You will most likely need to remove the air duct for clearance.
  • You may need to loosen, or remove the the fan shroud for clearance.
