      Hey guys, so I attempted to change my bad main rad fan and thought I was slick and tried to snake it out. Well, I cant exactly get the fan motor past the throttle body, and going down isnt an option. If I take of the front bumper, headlights and top bolts of the core support will I be able to tilt it and remove it? I have not seen a diy for it on a 225 and I unfortunately do not have access to a bentley.

      If it"s only the throttle body in the way then i would just remove it. 4 allen heads, a vacuum line, and a plug.

      I got access to a bentley and it says to remove the coolant line below the TB

      I replaced mine last summer and I went down with it (one of my tt buddies told me that's how he does it) and it was a pita. I jacked the front end up and moved the power steering lines out of the way that were bolted underneath. Getting the fan out wasn't too bad but going back in was a pain, it helps to have a second set of hands and if you decide to go this route be warned that the fan is pretty brittle and they don't sell the fans without the motors (I cracked the ring aroind the blades forcing the fan up the first time) but going slow and having some help we were able to get the fan up and into place

      i just replaced both my fans but i went by it by removing the bumper, headlights and loosened up the radiator and thats it.

      it sounds harder than it really is, took me probably 3 hours total to remove and put it back and my mechanic skill is probably like a 5/10 lol
