You need 2 special wrenches to do the job correctly. Also the big nut has a left hand thread. If you do not have access to these tools, you can use a large strap wrench to hold the assembly while you loosen the nut with a large adjustable wrench. Remember, it has left hand threds.

The fan clutch is a mechanical viscous drive and does not have a relay.

What is the problem? Do you want to replace fan or fan clutch?

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.

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.

You use a long 3/8 rachet to move the tensioner on the fan belt so you can remove it. Then you remove the 4 bolts holding the fan pully on with a 10mm wrench,you may have to get someone to hold the fan still when your breaking bolts loose. Take bolts out of the fan Clutch to remove the fan blades. Buy new parts & install in reverse order.

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!

fan clutch screws off water pump fan pump has left hand thread so to remove you need to turn clockwise

First you have to remove the fan shroud which is bolted to the radiator and front cross bracket with 10mm bolts. There should be 4 10mm bolts that hold the fan and clutch to the water pump. What you generally have to do is find a way to hold the clutch fan in place, I have used a large flat tip screwdriver in the past. Then you have to loosen the 4 bolts and remove the clutch and fan as a single unit. Once out of the vehicle you should be able to remove the fan from the clutch unit and only replace the clutch unit itself. Hope that helps a little Michael

You can absolutely replace the fan clutch on your 2003 Trailblazer yourself. The clutch does not have to be reprogrammed but you do have to wait until the vehicle is completely cool before you begin work. Just remember to re-torque the fan bolts as specified in your manual.
