So, my TB is now a JET. It sounds like I could take flight at any time now. Had the code read as P1484. So what I need to know is, can someone with very little mechanical knowledge change the fan clutch themselves with the correct tool? Or does taking it to a mechanic serve better? If taking it to a mechanic what type of cost could I be looking at? Im in a bit of a time crunch as I leave for vacation on friday and dont want to risk driving 1000 miles with this problem.
It isn't really all that hard to change it yourself, as long as you know how to turn a wrench. All you have to do is get a loaner tool for taking the fan off the water pump pulley, all it really is is a large wrench, 1 1/4 inch I believe ?.? After you get it you have to undo the fan from the pulley, disconnect the wiring on the shroud that goes to the fan clutch, unbolt the fan shroud and remove both pieces up through the top.
Then you remove the bolts that hold the fan to the fan clutch and off it comes.
Once you have the fan off the clutch just reverse the order and throw it all back together. Easy peasey, Japanesie....
Really, it is not very hard and you should have no problem doing it. If you do just throw up question and someone here will be glad to help you, im sure.
One note, I know on some it was but not sure about the TB but the threads on the fan clutch to the W/P pulley were left-handed threads...
