Tools Needed:

Adjustable Wrench
¾” wrench
5/16” socket
9/32” socket
15mm socket
18mm socket
(4) Crank bolts (these are torque to yield and only suppose to use them once) Part # W300024

First you need to drain out some of your coolant so that when you remove the top radiator hose, you don’t have coolant going everywhere. Use a ¾” wrench and loosen the plug on the bottom of the radiator (ds)

Drain out about a gallon of coolant should be enough. Then you can remove the lines running from the degas bottle and the top radiator hose and get them out of the way so that you will be able to pull the shroud & fan out. You might need to loosen the bolts to the radiator support (I did this but I don’t think it is necessary)
Next you will use the 5/16” socket to remove 2 bolts on the top of the shroud. Once they are removed you will be able to pull the shroud straight up and it will slide right out of there.

Next you will need to remove 4 15mm bolts that hold the back part of the shroud to the front of the motor. There are 2 on top and 2 on the bottom. Here is what the ones on bottom look like

Use the adjustable wrench to hold the spacer (only on bottom bolts) to keep from breaking the plastic tab. After you remove all of these you need to unplug the connection on top of the shroud and move it out of the way. Then you can pull the shroud forward and get a fan clutch wrench in there to loosen the fan. After you break it loose you can just spin the fan counter clockwise to remove it completely. Next just take a ½” breaker bar and use it to loosen the tensioner so that you can remove the belt. (push towards the d/s)

Next you will need an 18mm to remove the four bolts on the stock dampner. Install the new fluidampr and torque the bolts to 50 lbs + ¼ turn. Now just reinstall the belt (it can be done with fluidampr already installed) and reinstall everything else the way you took it off.

If you have any questions just let me know...:Thumbup:
