Cooling fan? Disconnect connector and unbolt. Lift out carefully.
Heater/AC fan? Disconnect power and ground connectors. Unbolt/unscrew. Lift out carefully.

. How do you 'disconnect'? (Left or right thread?) . And do you need to immobilise the fan to unscrew it? . Or, is there something else?

It should be the fan and shroud as an assembly. This means the fan doesn't need to be immobilised. Righty-tighty, lefty-loosey.
Connector disconnect should be depress tab and pull apart.

The viscus coupling fan is a L/H thread, you can often set the spanner on the clutch hub nut and give it a fair thump with a hammer, there is a special tool to hold the fan hub, but often just giving it a decent whack will loosen it.

Electric or belt-driven fan mhp? The last Falcon built for the U.S. Market was back in the 60s. My dad misses them.

Ok. Then my answer was definitely wrong. I figured electric.
