Question about 1997 GMC Safari
It is a bit easier to remove the fan clutch nuts with the belt on but if you have it off already it still is the same procedure. Once you remove the upper shroud half (I think there are 5 small bolts) you will have more room to work with. Start draining the coolant out of the pitcock in the bottom of the radiator and remove the radiator cap. There are 4 nuts holding the fan clutch on to the 4 pulley studs. Take along flat head screwdriver and place it so you are able to pry against 2 of the nuts so you can lock the pulley in place while you loosen the nuts with a closed end (boxed end) wrench. Use the screwdriver to spin the pulley when you are ready to loosen another nut. Be careful to keep your hand on the fan when it is ready to be removed or it may damage the radiator. Do the same thing in reverse when you are ready to install it.
