Default Radiator Fan

Any tips on replacing the radiator fan on a '96 Accord. How do you get to
the bottom bolts in the shroud. Also do you have to remove the top radiator
hose to get the shroud out.

Remove the two hold-downs at the top. The rad will lift out with the fan
attached.

Is there not any bolts in the bottom. When I take the top 2 out it seems
like it doesn't want to come out. I was afraid something would break.

I did unhook the fan connector. It feels like something is holding it in at
the bottom. Are there only the 2 bolts in the top.

1. please don't top post - it makes threads impossible to follow.

2. there are only 2 bolts - the bottom of the frame sits in two sockets.
unless something is bent, and if the electrical sockets are unplugged
at the bottom, it'll just lift out.

If it is an auto tranny the transmission fluid hoses will have to be removed
from the bottom. IIRC I used a pencil to plug them.

Try rocking the rad side-to-side while lifting; I'm sure there is nothing
actually holding the bottom except stickiness. The proper incantations will
come to you ;-) Unless I am confusing it with a different car there are two
locating pins on the bottom that point upward, and that's it.

No.

You do have to disconnect the automatic transmission oil cooler lines as
well.

Did you remove the splash shields from underneath to make sure you've
got everything disconnected that needs to be?

not for the fan - that's the rad!

I'm thinking the radiator had to come out to get the fan out (not much room
there) but I could certainly be wrong about that. It's been a year or so and
at my age these things tend to run together :-(
