Question about GMC Envoy XL

1 Answer

I have a2002 GMC envoy and I rented a fan clutch wrench set and for the life of me I cant get the nut loose. I got one wrench on nut itself, and another one of those tools grasping on two bolts and that tool keeps slipping off. Cant get a good grasp of the bolts, it even started bending the tool. I even tried to hit the wrench on the nut with a hammer and that didnt work. I believe its counter clockwise. I just dont think Im doing it right.

Removing water pump clutch


You need to rent/borrow a fan clutch wrench remover set. They are large skinny wrenches that hold the bolts on the fan so it doesn't spin, while loosening that large nut. Sometimes you can monkey around with strap wrenches and crecent wrenches, but thats no fun. Kragen/Oriely's rents the tool for a $89 deposite. Return when done, and you claim back all your money. Yay! free toolls.

How do i remove the fan and pulley on a 1987 ford ranger 2.9 v-6?


The question is: How remove clutch in order to remove fan mounted on its engine-side face.
  • Generally, the clutch drive half shaft must be uncoupled from coolant pump (impeller drive) half shaft using special wrench kit available as loaner from AutoZone (free with $79 approx deposit).
  • Best done after shroud & radiator remove after coolant drained.
  1. Uncouple coolant pump and fan clutch drive shaft(s) as follows:
    1. span across combo-pulley-sheaves-unit mounting bolt heads with large tool kit wrench, and
    2. span inline clutch coupling nut with small tool kit wrench. Then,
    3. turn small wrench (and coupling nut) CW while resisting with large wrench (CCW) to turn coupling nut until disengaged from coolant pump drive shaft.
  2. Remove fan/clutch assembly.
  3. Note direction of mounted fan hub and fan blades orientation to ensure proper re-assembly.
  4. On rear of clutch assy, remove 4 bolts to disengage and remove fan.
  5. Assemble new fan to clutch (or, preferably, new clutch and new fan) using new bolts and washers provided with fan.
  6. Couple fan-clutch assy to coolant pump drive shaft as per opposite of uncoupling step 1, above. (Turn inline nut CCW to tighten...30 ft-lb.
  7. Check that fan can be hand turned...CW.)
  8. Rest shroud over and onto fan.
  9. Replace radiator; remount shroud; reclamp hoses, and refill and air purge cooling system.

The large nut that holds the fan is removed in a clockwise direction, it will require several sharp hits on an open end wrench to loosen it.

What is the best way to brake loose the fan clutch fron the water pump


They make a tool set that has a wrench and holding tool. Otherwise the best way is to take a long bar with a point on the end, place the point on the flat part of the top of the hex nut flange towards your left and hit the other end of the bar with a large hammer. the jarring should break it free.(If you have a compressor an air chisel works great for this)

Problems with Ford fan clutch wrench.


what i used to do to hold it and you need two people to do it.... is to have one person apply pressure to the fan belt so the pulleys would not turn.... then hold the fan blade with one hand and loosen the bolts

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.
