  • 8mm wrench

  • Pliers (optional)

  • Flathead screwdriver

Step 1: Using the 8mm wrench, disconnect the positive battery terminal.

Using a flathead screwdriver, gently pry the retaining pins up, disengaging them and facilitating removal.

Step 4: When facing the vehicle, locate the upper and lower retaining clips that hold the radiator in place (right side). Disengage these clips.

Step 7: You can now gently lift the fan casing, and you will feel it disengage from the radiator. Remove the AC fan.

NOTE: When removing the AC fan, be sure that you do not damage the radiator. By gently removing the fan, you can easily slide it out of its place.

Step 8: Begin installing your new AC fan.

Slide the new fan down into place, and secure it into position by securing the engaging clips and tightening the 10mm mounting bolt.

Step 9: Reconnect the wiring harness on the back of the AC fan.

Step 10: Reattach the two 10mm mounting bolts located on the top of the radiator.
