How do I remove the cooling fan shroud from the top of the radiator ? I'm trying to change the cooling fan motor, and I've removed the bolt holding the fan shroud to the radiator, but I can't get the...


I would suggest replacing the cooling fan relay in the fuse compartment under the hood first. Cooling fan motors very, very rarely go bad. You will probably end up having to remove the radiator to remove the shroud. You will save yourself a lot of time and money if you replace the relay first.

    Cooling fan motor


    No answers, so I'll try, since I just pulled one another model, removing plastic push-in clips with a screwdriver, and some tricky little machine screws on the side with a small socket. I think the fan and shroud come out as a unit - unplug and pull carefully avoiding other obstacles, and without damaging the sensitive aluminum fins of the rad.
