The easiest thing to do is to remove the shroud then the cooling fan assembly. Once it is out, then you can access the motor much easier.

This is how I did it, works fairly well, too bad it didn't fix the problem

Can you tell me what is happening?

Cooling fan does turn but, very slowly and does not speed up any with a/c switched on, I did replace the fan motor with a brand new Ford part. It only gets hot when standing still, like a traffic jam or just idling, does ok on the road ( air is forced thru the radiator)

I also borrowed a tester ( Snap-on scanner) and ran the Ford "star test" on the car, got no codes, and it said "fan speeds" good with KOER test. Fan did not speed up

Have you checked for excessive resistance in the wiring to the blower motor? Ground?

How could this have any affect on the cooling fan?
