Removed Lower Shroud Can not get it back it

Removed Lower Shroud Can not get it back it

Postby selcooper [OP] » June 1st 2015, 1:34am

Okay so i had to do an Alternator and belt fix on my 2004 GMC Safari AWD


I did the repair ok and with the bosses opps I mean the wife's help was able to get the belt in place.


But when i went to replace the lower shroud I could not get it to seat back into its original position. to make matters worse I snapped one of the clips down at the base where the unit should clip into.


So I guess i am definitely calling for help as to what to do to get this piece back into the position that it needs to be in.


PS do not tell my wife I am asking for help it will ruin my rep

I replaced my '97 w/ an elec fan years ago but IIRC it hooked on the front bottom and had a couple bolts that held it to the upper shroud.

I struggled to get mine out and finally used an oscillating saw to cut off the 2" I was going to remove for my lift. Afterward it slipped in and out easily. I don't know how desperate you are and I don't know if you would have to remove the full 2". If you go this route put some scrap sheet metal between the shroud and belts/hoses so the vibrating blade doesn't hit them. Ken
