Fan Removal

Ok guys, I searched and cannot find exactly what I am looking for.

On a 96 Disco, when removing the viscous fan, I have a wrench on the nut facing upwards, do you hit the wrench towards the drivers or passenger side? Lefty loosey, righty tighty, whatever. Hit it left, or hit it right? I cannot get this fan to crack loose.

I'm pretty sure it's righty loosey, lefty tighty. In other words, left hand threads.

yes, I would say the same thing, becase it spins like it does the threads should be left handed.

No way! I'm about to move the wrench too! Not to challenge the other folks, but the workshop manual says to loose the gas GEMS you hit counterclockwise (right hand) and the diesel is left handed to loose, not the other way around. Tell me which side you moved, bud.

He's right. All serpentine V8 have a "normal" thread. The older RRCs/D90s with V-belts are the "reversed" thread.

I keep my promise to help. Am confirming I removed the Disco I 96 GEMS engine viscous fan with a counterclockwise hit in a 36 mm open ended wrench (the beast is right hand threaded). The viscous pulley can be stuck which requires greater power. You prevent the water pump pulley to spin, put a strong screwdriver across the axle, touching one of the 3 pulley bolts with the tip. You may use less effort not pushing the screwdriver with the left hand, so you better to sit the screwdriver handle in a 15 mm socket plugged in the belt tensioner bolt to make the necessary leverage.

There is such a tool as a pulley wrench for using in such cases.....

Carehta, Thanks the screwdriver 15mm socket combo did the trick

I had problems as well removing the fan on my 04. I used a fan tool wrench from Oreillys and a pair of vise grips that I clamped on to the fan pulley.
