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.

Aussie EA falcons are belt driven fans

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