Usually replacement is required if overheating is occurring during idle,but you should change the thermostat first,make sure the drive belt is good as well as tight.If idle is too slow under load,this will also cause this symtom,low idle speed with air conditioning on will aggravate this problem as well.
Hope this helps
HI, The first question I need to know is, have you removed the fan yet? And why do you want to remove the clutch? Are you trying to replace the fan/clutch assy? If you have not removed the fan/clutch then here's how to get that out. First drain the cooling system so the coolant is below the upper radiator hose. Take the upper hose off of the radiator. remove all of the fan shroud retaining fasteners. Loosen all of the fan/clutch mounting fasteners. remove the water pump drive belt. Remove the fan/clutch mounting fasteners, then lift the fan/clutch and fan shroud out together. Then remove the clutch however you can. Reverse what you did to replace everything and replace the coolant. This could be a good time to replace all your coolant if it hasn't been done for as while. Good luck and if you need more help, we hope you'll clarify your question. Steve H.
Usually there are 4 nuts holding the clutch and fan on to the water pump shaft. Just pull the nuts, remove the fan clutch and replace it.
What is the problem? Do you want to replace fan or fan clutch?

no. but it will interfere with keeping your engine staying cool its simple to replace a fan clutch
Some indications you need to have the fan clutch replaced are an engine that overheats and too much play in the clutch fan. Another clue is if the fan blade freezes up or if the thermal spring is loose or worn out.
You need to rent or buy a fan clutch removal tool kit. you need to remove the fan and clutch as one before you can separate the fan from the clutch.

You will need to remove the radiator shroud to get access then release the belt tensioner and remove the belt(s) that restrict access to the fan clutch. Finally, remove the bolts that hold the fan clutch in place. Reverse the process. Done. I hope this helps you. Mark
yes just replace the fan clutch assembly
The fan clutch is not functioning properly. Replace.
You need to remove the upper hose and then the fan shroud on the upper half. The fan clutch is then held on with 4 bolts. Remove these and the fan will slide out from the engine. You might need to loosen the belt so you can turn the fan and get to all 4 bolts. With the unit removed you can then remove and replace the fan on the clutch assy. Reinstall in the reverse order.
Fan clutch is mounted to the fan, on the front of the motor. You will need a special tool or a BIG wrench to fit the large nut behind it. Lock the fan in place somehow, and turn the large nut clockwise(the rule:lefty loosy, right tighty, doesn't apply here) to remove the clutch/fan assembly. Once of replace clutch and re-install in reverse order of things.
If Possible Get rid of your Clutch Fan and go Electric! But to answer the question, remove serpentine belt and use a strap wrench to stop clutch from spinning when you try to remove fan clutch nut from water pump!
mack fan clutch has left hand thread.i have changed them out before, hope that helps you
Answermost times a fan clutch only feels loose if the bearings are worn out. this means you need to replace it. would be more helpful if you say where it is loose, as the fan screws (left hand thread) onto the fan clutch.the clutch mounts to the water pump,and has drive pullyso it could even be the water pump that is worn outAlso, if you are referring to the fact that the fan spins freely, it is supposed to until the clutch engages it when it's needed. A clutch fan does not always spin when the engine is running and is not supposed to.
