I had it all fixed but radiator in ckooked and let my wife drivre it told her that I couldnt tightn the shoud or fan would rub anyway fan hit the shroud and exploded and shattered
our radiator fan is shattered needs to be replaced I might haver to replace the radiator as well but I understand that part just kant finger out how to get the fan off so I can rplace it
in the front of the fan I would think thier would be a bolt to take off but its ametal spiral thing their
I think 6 bolts probaly 13 mm becouse I dont have one
behind the fan facing the motor
are these what holds it on

Look at the area where the fan attaches to the water pump. See that big nut? That is what takes the fan off. Once you break it free (I have the proper wrench but a large crescent will work) remove what is left of the shroud, the fan will then unbolt from the hub of the clutch unit (the item with the spiral spring) Now drain the coolant unless the damage to the radiator is VERY MINOR. R&R the radiator if needed.
