Just leave the belts on the engine and use a open end wrench,I think a 10 mm,might be a 8 mm,and use another wrench to hold one of the nuts,and loosen all the nuts,then remove them by hand.Of course the fan shroud needs to be removed at the same time you lift the fan and fan clutch up,and out of the vehicle.Then just unbolt the fan from the fan clutch,install in reverse order.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

The clutch is a fluid clutch. The only adjustment is to make sure the fluid is full. The ones I have worked on use a combined resoveir that holds brake fluid for both the brakes and the clutch system. So check the fluid in your master cylinder.

SOURCE: Replaced blower motor in my 2001 kia sportage ex,

It could be the blower motor resistor, the high position feeds full 12 volt power directly to the blower motor. All lower settings route through the blower motor resistor. It is usually located under the passenger side dash, not far from the blower motor. Two screws secure it to the heater box.
