Fan Clutch

Even though I know it's not a clutch it's a thermal unit, regardless, mine needs changing because my fan is always engaged and turns high rpms and can hear it very audibly over the motor. I'm assuming it's the unit right behind the fan itself (16)? And how hard is it to change out myself if I am mechanically inclined?

They are considerably cheaper at autozone, at least for first gens, check there. Pretty easy swap, You will have to take the fan shroud off....pull the 4 nuts holding the fan/clutch onto the pulley, then pull the whole fan/clutch unit out, replace clutch and rebolt on.
Fair enough. Thats how I do it on the pathy/1st gen, but I have very limited fan/rad clearance. You guys probably have more.
