the clutch unscrewes couter clock wise at the water pump big hex nut it looks like I used an eight inch pipe wrench and snuck it in behind where the cover and four bolts where on the clutch with the handle resting on the engine. I did remove one bolt off to make room for the cescent wrench. I took a ten inch crescent and held the nut. It just barely fit. Held on the small pipewrench, gave the crescent ( handle up at one o'clock) a firm shot to the left with the hammer. Finished removing with the crescent. Then replaced my water pump without removing rad or shroud. Thight fit, but it can be done by flipping the pump bottom up near the AC.

First remove the accessory drive belt- then loosen the large nut that attaches the fan clutch assembly to the water pump pulley being careful to loosen the nut clock wise not counter clockwise (It is a left handed thread)-now you can remove the fan to clutch bolts so you can separate the clutch assembly from the fan.

In some Nissan Pickups of that year, the fan clutch is actually integrated with the water pump as an assembly. Therefore, the fan clutch cannot be separated from the water pump. There are six bolts holding the water pump to the engine block; remove those bolts and the water pump/fan clutch assembly should come out as a unit.

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!

Unless the fan clutch is bad just remove it with the water pump. Otherwise it is a 36mm fan clutch wrench that most auto parts stores have for rent.

after you remove the fan and fan hood remove the belt and the alternator. you then remove the 6mil bolts and your water pump should come free from the timing chain cover.

AnswerTo remove the clutch fan, undo the bolts that hold it on. Then take a puller and pull it of the shaft. Then you can get at the water pump. Also remember that the fan shroud has to come out first. A fan clutch wrench set would help you.

Disconnect the battery. Using a clutch fan tool, hold the clutch to loosen and remove it. Remove the fan shroud. Drain the radiator. Remove the water pump belt, then the pump. Install the pump and reverse the process to finish the process.

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.

yes. Water companies are overseen by state utility regulators. They are utility companies. The water bill, therefore is a utility bill.

Get the correct water pump and clutch for your car. Loosen the alternator and remove the fan. Remove the bracelets, hoses and the retaining bolts. Remove the water pump and replace it with the new one.

Not all the fan clutch nuts are left hand thread some are right handed. It states which type you have on the top of the radiator shroud.AnswerPut a rag on the pulley and wrap your chain wrench around it to hold on and keep the pump from turning when you put your monster adjustable wrench on the clutch and turn it off. Sears sells a strap wrench (Part #45570) that works really well for holding the fan pulley.

With symptom properly diagnosed you unbolt fan & clutch from water pump, remove clutch, install new part, attach to water pump. Also ensure thermostat is properly functioning, water pump is in good condition( you can stick screwdriver in it with hose removed to see if the fins are there), coolant is there and system is bled (if it requires bleeding), radiator is not clogged and coolant is in good condition.

clutch fan is removed with 2 special tools. these are available at auto stores.they are not cheap. also remember the clutch fan screws onto water pump, and has left hand thread,so you will need to turn it clockwise to remove

User Avatar

To remove the clutch fan on these Fords you will need to get a specialized tool from your local auto parts store. This tool allows to hold the water pump retaining bolts, then use a 1 7/8 wrench on the clutch fan. Check your belt routing label. This will tell you if your fan clutch is left hand thread.

It is a fan with a clutch. You have to have clutch wrentches to remove it. The nut that holds it to the water pump is an 1 1/2 nut. You have to hold the water pump pulley from turning and loosen the nut by turning it counter clockwise (as you are looking at it).

If your Ford Aerostar is overheating and losing water, it may be a bad radiator. You need to take your car in to get serviced.
