does the fan come on when supposed to? you could hook your fans to a toggle switch and run them manually from start to finish this may help. also did you bleed the system after replacing these parts and purge all air from cooling system? is the coolant coming out of the resovoir hose?

SOURCE: What is the easiest way to get to the radiator fan relay on the bumper behind the front grille?

Yes, first remove the drivers side headlight. There are 3 bolts to remove for the headlight assembly. Once it is removed, you can have access to the relay. You may have to remove some of the screws that hold the top of the front facia to the cross member to give you some more access, but you don't have to take off the whole grill to replace the relay. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: unable to remove fan from water pump

Remember, fan has a reverse thread. Righty-tightey, lefty-loosey does not apply. You need a clutch fan wrench. (available at your local auto parts store.)

How do I install an A/C fan?


generally the fan which supplies warm air from the heater does double duty and works the A/C as well.
if you put your head down where your front passenger's feet go and look up you will see the bottom of the fan. you disconnect the wiring and unscrew the screws and the fan will drop into your hands. you may have to remove a cosmetic panel below the glove box if you have a more expensive model. the fans are all about the same and are less than 50 bucks at any parts store. before you put the new fan in it does not hurt to put a non metallic vacuum hose in the box and clean it out a bit.

note if the fan runs when the heater is on, but not the A/C, then your problem is not the fan.
