Question about 2001 Dodge Dakota
Remove clutch fan from dodge dakota 4.7 L engine, 2001
I have removed the serpantine belt and cannot hold the smoothe pulley the serpantine belt runs on in order to break the clutch loose from the water pump.
This one does require a tool to loosen the fan clutch from the water pump shaft. Part of the tool holds the pulley and the other part is spanner wrench used to loosen the clutch. An important note on these fan clutches: Once you have the fan clutch off DO NOT let it lay with the rear side of the fan pointing downward as the silicone fluid that provides the "clutch" action can drain into the bearing and cause the clutch not to work. Once you have the clutch off just lean the fan and clutch against something so it is standing upright just as it is when it's bolted to the water pump until you are ready to put it back on. Hope this helps you out a bit!

Testimonial: "I tried the Advance too loaner. Spanner had no bolts to hold. I used a carpenters cat's paw to hold the edge of the pully and broke the bolt with a 12" crescent. Cleaned teh pulley up with a file so the small screatsh would not eat the serpantine belt. I did not knpw about th esilicone , thanks."
It may require a special tool i know some gm do. advanced auto has a loan-a-tool program
