I was wondering if anyone could tell me what all has to come off and in what order they have to come off in order to remove and replace the engine cooling fan. I am trying to avoid draining the radiator. Please let me know asap. Also are there any specialty tools I need like a bolt puller or anything like that? I have sockets and rachet and the other basic tools. Thanks again.
Do you
have the same problem?
