What size wrench to remove fan clutch.

What size wrench to remove fan clutch.

Postby hdtrc [OP] » January 17th 2012, 1:38am

I'm blown away by how difficult it is to remove the fan clutch. It would have been nice if the blades could be removed from the clutch first.

What size wrench do I need? I tried a 1 5/16 but that was too small. Is it 1 3/8 or 1 1/2?

is a 36mm or you can use a crescent wrench to remove it, thats what i did i used a 16" crescent and a rubber mallet to get that sucker to break loose after that just spin the fan and watch it come off.

They have clutch fan removal wrenches for rent at Autozone and other auto parts stores for free. But, a cresent wrench is good too.

It's 1 7/16", I tried using the one from Autozone, the particular wrench I needed was spread open, didn't work. Got a tip to use a air chisel on one of the corners, worked great.
