Yours may differ slightly but for mine a special tool is required to counter hold the fan assembly whilst you slacken the central bolt. When I say 'required', I managed by wedging a block of wood in the auxulliary belt to stop the fan turning :)

Once the assembly is off you can unbolt the blades from the hub/viscous clutch. There is a warning that the clutch should be stored upright so if you are planning to re-use it bear that in mind. Not sure if it is really essential, and if so what happens with a new one which may have been stored in any orientation before you get it?

Some info for you should be here.

Edit: Unfortunately when I went back I discovered that the video has been removed.

There is some text here about removing the fan. Again, unfortunately the pictures weren't posted to Sprinter-source so they too have been lost. The text should help though.

There is a cost to you for my information. As payment you must now take the time to add your vehicle info (at least the model year) to your signature or details. That way we will never need to ask again what model year you own.

Add your vehicle info to all your posts automatically!!!!! It will help you to get answers. Thank you.

Here's how to do it.

The most direct method is probably in your "Details".
After you are logged in click on "Private Messages" (or “Quick Links”) in the upper right corner.
On the left side under "Your Profile" click on "Edit your Details".
Scroll down to the "Custom User Title" box.
Click in that box and type the information.
I suggest “Vehicle year – NAFTA or 311, etc.” depending upon your location.
Scroll down to the "Save Changes" box. Click on that and you are done.

Another place is in your "Signature".
Click on "Private Messages" (or “Quick Links”) in the upper right.
On the left look for "Setting and Options".
Click on "Edit Signature".
Scroll down to the text box which looks like what you use to add a post to the forum. Type in the information you want.
I used “NAFTA 2004 140 2500 Std Roof >240,000 mi. DAD”
Scroll down to "Preview Signature". If the preview looks like what you want, scroll down to "Save Signature", click on that and you're done.


Have fun. vic

Follow APs links. I just did this and they were indispensable. I held the fan from turning with a long screwdriver. Worked great.

This post here will also give you the details on how to do it.

http://sprinter-source.com/forum/showthread.php?t=12364

The fan removes from the cluth after you take the whole assembly out. While having the clutch holding tool is nice, you can do it without that tool as described. Pulling the plastic fan shroud up some and out of the way will give you more room to work. It is actually quite easy once you do it as one bolt removes the whole thing. Then 3 bolts attach the fan to the clutch.

Ask if you have more questions.

The video has been removed. Is the allen head screw left handed thread & how much force is required to loosen it?

Right hand thread, and, IIRC, it's tightened to ~30 ft-lbs.
