Well the fan clut is fairly simple to remove, the only tricky part is when you secure the pulley, you had to turn the fan nut clockwise to take it off. This nut is threaded reverse so that it won't spin off the car well the engin is turned on. You'll need to basic tools. Here i'll show you them

you'll need a reallly big wrench or something......i think it was like 34mm or 36mm something like that

oh ya once u take it out, dont lay it flat, keep it upright (verticle) you could damage it if u lay it flat

This is complete bulshit. It wont hurt it one bit. New fan clutches have no "this side up" markings on it, or the box. Its all just some stupid rumor started by people that talk out of their ass on the internet.

Well my uncle always does it, im sure this rumor hasn't started on the internet....he said when he first started fixing cars, he once took one out and left it flat overnight.....then a few days after putting it back together the fan clutch went......probably jus a coincidence,but eh its jus a precaution i guess......plus i guess this way u'd place it out of the way, and not put anything on it and break the blades

There's also the two types of clutch, the big nut one :eek:

and the little nut one :D

I don't care to know which one you have.

A. You can use a thin monkey wrench if you don't have a spanner that big. Apply peroxide to your knuckles after the bleeding subsides.

B. Fan clutches can be sensitive to being stored on their sides. I'm not sure if this is the case any more, but older ones' oil seals could dry out from all the oil being pressed to one side, causing the clutch to prematurely fail. This was before this thing called the 'internet'.
