SOURCE: How do you remove the fan and clutch assembly from the water pump

Your post was really old before I read it but... You need a pair of special tools... one to remove one to install clutch with. If you don't do this often the price is not justified. Just get a decent compressor at a junkyard, put it in and have it charged!!! If youre talking about the fan & clutch on the front of the water pump, just unbolt it and put a new one on!!!

SOURCE: need to replace water pump on my 2000 wrangler

With the belt still installed, have someone lean on the belt...this should keep the pulley from turning while you work on the bolts. You can also use a large screwdriver and wedge it between one bolt you are not yet working on and the shaft, using that to hold the pulley still. Loosen all of them before removing, otherwise, you will run out of bolts to hold when you get to the last one.

SOURCE: unable to remove fan from water pump

Remember, fan has a reverse thread. Righty-tightey, lefty-loosey does not apply. You need a clutch fan wrench. (available at your local auto parts store.)

SOURCE: how to remove fan and clutch assembly from water

there are special tools for this, but you should be able to do it by holding the pulley by sticking two bolts through the holes and placing a pry bar between them. grab the large hex with a large wrench, or crescent wrench and turn it loose. to my knowledge all the dodges are right hand thread

SOURCE: 1996 dodge ram. Vehicle runs hot. I have replaced

Hello there"
sounds like you have done a lot with this there is a few things that you can do to ensue every thing is running right.
first if you can get a handheld thermal gun and check the temperature at the temp sensor on the radiator or block then see what it reads compared to the guage to ensure the guage is correct.
next check the temperature at both the top and the bottom of the radiatoer if there is a big difference in temps the radiator is partially blocked a radiator will increase 30 to 100 degrees if the radiator is 20 percent blocked.. also check to ensure that the radiator hoses are not collapsing.
Now ensure that you are not gettin air in the system by way of the water pump gasket or by loose hoses ok?
and finaly check to ensure that the heater core is not leaking and drawing air into the system or is clogged this will make a vehical give the overheating symptom also ok?
Let me know how this is going
Best regards mikle

How to remove the clutch fan on a 2004 dodge ram


autozone usually has a fan clutch loaner tool set, however in a pinch a strap wrench can hold the pulley and then you have room to fit a decent size crescent wrench. In a hurry you can use an air hammer on an edge (of the nut) going counterclockwise, they also make a neat tool that does basically the same thing, might take a few tries but you will get it.

Do you know how to get the fan and fan clutch off the old water pump? we took out all 4 bolts on the clutch and still nothing my dad says there is a nut that twists off but have been unsuccessful


You have to hold the belt pulley to prevent it from turning, then unscrew the fan clutch by using a wrench or big channel locks on the part of the clutch nearest the pulley. On your Ram it should be a standard( not left handed) thread. You might have to put the old water pump in a vise to hold it while unscrewing the clutch. When you put the clutch back on you just need to snug it up on the water pump, the pump is a reverse rotation so the clutch will not unscrew itself.

How do you remvoe the radiator fan from the clutch on a 97 dodge ram pick up


To seperate the fan from the fan clutch there should be four small bolts that keep them together. Not sure thats what you are looking for but if you are trying to seperate the fanclutch from the water pump then you need a special tool to hold the pully from turning with the one hand while turning the fan clutch nut with the other they rent these tools at autozone.Once youve seperated the fan clutch from the water pump then you can take the fan off the clutch by removing the four small bolts.Please rate my assistance in helping you thank you.

How do you change the water pump on a 1997 Dodge Dakota 6cyl 3.9liter w/ air?


1. Drain the cooling system.
2. Remove or disconnect the following:
* Negative battery cable
* Fan and clutch assembly from the pump
* Fan shroud and fan assembly.
* If you're reusing the fan clutch, keep it upright to avoid silicone fluid loss!
* Lower hose
* Water pump (8 bolts)
3. Installation is the reverse of removal. Tighten the bolts, in sequence, to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).

Before you remove the serp belt, loosen the clutch fan bolts from the water pump. Other wise you will be fighting with them later. Other wise just drain the coolant and remove the pump. I would suggest a new thermostat since the coolant is drained. Make sure the block surface is cleaned of all gasket material and other dirt before installing your new pump. I usually scrape the area with a putty knife and wipe it down with some brake clean on a rag.

Harmonic balancer for 1999 dodge ram 1500


well if i remember correctly that fan clutch is reverse threads so in other words to loosen it you'll have to turn your wrench clockwise. they do this cuz the rotation of the fan will tighten itself onto the water pump. anyway what i do is leave the serpentine belt on the the pulleys and that will kinda hold them steady whilst you put the "special" wrench on the clutch and pop it loose you'll prolly need a cheater bar to make things easier but not too much or you'll overcome the traction of the belt and it will just slip.
