Angry Fan shroud removal

Alright guys I tried to remove my shroud to get to my fan because the clutch took a chit... I even tried drinking beer while doing it and I did nothing but smash my knuckles and hit my head. How it the hell do you remove this thing? Should I just take it in or should I do it my self with some assistance? Please for the love of the powerstroke gods help me and my little hands.

Re: Fan shroud removal

its easiest to drain the coolant and remove the radiator. then the fan and clutch are right there in the open. or you can loosen the fan with a fan wrench or an air chisel and spin it off. then there are 4 or 5 bolts (15mm) that hold the shroud in place. 2 directly below the intake manifold, 2 on the very bottom, and one on the drivers side about half-way up the shroud. then you can lift both the fan and the shroud out

Re: Fan shroud removal

apparently it's not to bad I have been meaning to do this myself

some cut the shroud at the obvious cutting line to help with removal

I think I will do the radiator route myself

Re: Fan shroud removal

Radiators are extremely easy on these trucks. You will need a special tool to remove grand cooler lines if it's an 05-07 truck. I have always used ac line tools to get them off.

It's actually very easy to do.

Remove the upper radiator hose from the neck, as well as the over flow tube connected to the radiator. Then remove the two screws (8 or 10mm) holding the shroud onto the radiator assembly. Then, remove the plastic piece behind the Powerstroke V8 Logo, and attached to the shroud, with a small screwdriver.

The shroud assembly can be removed by pulling straight up with care. Then, you will have direct access to the fan and the circular shroud which is attached to the intake.

Re: Fan shroud removal

radiators are a snap to take out on these trucks as long as you have the tool to get the trans lines out, and sometimes they are a real PITA!!! and make sure you have a drain pain handy cuz the tranny fluid will be all over the floor before you can say OH SHI*!
