Hi to remove the fan hub, you will need to lock the pulley still. Bmw have a flat tool that is about 24 inch's long with holes in it that the pulley bolts fit in then turning the spanner against the pulley tool, nut has LH thread so opposite direction. Job done.

Which direction do i have to turn the nut to unscrew my mahindra bolero fan?

Hi I have seen several scrap fan motors because one did not ask which way but just tried! You are clever by checking first
There are two ways I determine the correct way!
1) See whether there is a piece of the thread sticking out past tghe nut. See whether you can make our the threads/. The threads are slanted!
Turn the nut in the direction that will slide it along the threads in the direction that you want ot to exit!
Remember that the fan nut & direction was designed as a self tightening mechanism.
If you look at the shape of the blades, ou can figure out which way the motor have to turn to propell the wind in the correct direction. now imagine, you are holding the fan, and the bmotor is trying to turn the fan. See what way you have to oppose the motor's push. That way is tight! So turn the nut in the opposite direction.

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.

Need help removing clutch fan and water pump from 1989 ford ranger

the fan is threaded onto the water pump, they do make a set of wrenches to remove the fan. but all you have to do is leave the belt on the water pump and take a long blunt nose punch and put the tip of the punch on the very edge of one of the flats on the big nut on the back of the fan and hit it with a hammer, keep in mind the direction of the threads most are right handed but some of the early ones were left handed threads, if they are left handed it should be marked on the fan shroud, in a pinch the drag bar off the back of a tiller makes a pretty good punch......GOOD LUCK.....just remember righty tighty lefty loosey

Don't know if it's left or right hand tread to remove cooling fan

Good point, some of those fans are left hand threads, If you can't turn it to the left to get it off, try it the other way, My Nissan is left handed. The squirrel cage should tell you which direction is spins, the threads should be opposite?
