Viscous Fan Removal Problem - 2.5 TDI
ok im in the process of trying to get in and check my altenator drive belt and tensioner due to the belt coming off but still being in 1 piece. Im stuck at the viscous fan, thru some searching i read i need 2 long thin 32mm spanners, which i dont have, the best i have is a lage shifting spanner and mole grips but the jams on both are thick and i cant get both of them on there. I have also removed the 3 x small nuts on the pulley to give me more room, i have even tried 'chiseling' it roung using a hammer and long screwdriver, but no joy. Im assuming this is a left hand thead?
any tips for removing this or am i gonna have to buy a 32mm spanner and hope i can use my shifter along with the spanner to get this viscous fan off??
