Which Fan are you referring to? If you are refferring to the rad fan then you need to put the car on ramps and bring a socket set not sure the exact size and a flat head screwdriver. There are 2 nuts on the bottom of the rad and once undone it will just pop out. The space is very tight and you only have limited movement once the two nuts are off. This took me approx four hours to door where in a garage on a hoist would only take half the time as you will be able to see better and have better movement of your hands.

Be carfeul when undoing the nuts as mine were corroded on and when i tried to undo them i bent the metal and now they don't tighten properly so the whole unit is loose.

Once you get the bolts of and undo the wiring harness, flat screwdriver to remove harness. You can remove the whole fan assembly, then you will need to take the blade off to get to the mounting screws. The fan is actually separate from the shroud it is not all one unit. so then once you remove the fan and the 3 screws holding the fan to the shroud you can simply reverse the procedure. Make sure you tighten all the screws with good force to prevent vibration from losening them.

Done!

How do you replace the blower motor resistor on a 1998 Pontiac sunfire?

Replacing the blower motor resistor on a 2000 Pontiac Sunfire is a bugger of a job!.This project is far easier if you remove the blower fan first. You may be able to do it leaving the fan in, but you have to be an elf with very good eyesight. Tools required: 1/4" driver with a universal and a short 5.5 mm or 7/32" socket. First remove the wiring harness and the visible screw. Here's the tricky part! The rear screw is out of sight, and you have to push the floor liner down to get the socket attached. Once you get the 2nd screw out, simply remove and replace with the new one, reinstall the fan motor and your back in business. Hint: If you are not agile, or you are a large person, remove the front passenger seat. It's only 4 nuts and it will save your back. Martin Drost- Taber, Alta Canada.

Why does the cooling fan not rotate on a 1995 Pontiac Sunfire?

the fan is controlled by sensors and a switch and comes on if the coolant is too hot - mostly after you cut the engine off or in slow traffic. If you are overheating in traffic and it doesn't come on somebody has to check the circuits out to find the problem.
