    get the top half off the fan shroud? Those staples are a b*tch and I can't seem to free them w/o breaking the plastic. Any ideas appreciated. Thanks.

    Remove the four nuts that hold the fan on and pull it out. Then you can get the whole shroud out(two more bolts on the bottom). Then you can easily get to the water pump.

    '85 K5 : Run it til it breaks, then fix it and go again!

    I figured that's what you were up to........Like Mr4x4 said, pulling the whole thing out is easy and gives you a lot more room[​IMG]!!!!!

    I've NEVER removed the fan shroud to replace a water pump. Hell, it never even occured to me. I'm on it next time it happens. I can hardly wait for mine to burn up.(Im not being a smart ass either, I'm being dead serious)

    That jeep thing? Yah I understand it....... Like my Blazer? <a target="_blank" href=http://community.webshots.com/user/blazerk5>http://community.webshots.com/user/blazerk5</a>

    Problem is, the fan is already disconnected and loose. That's what the original problem was. I can't get it out without removing the shroud (at least the top half, which I thought would be easier). Maybe I'm missing something...?[​IMG]

    On my 84, the fan just slid off the four bolts and I lifted it up and out. I *MAY* have had to tilt it a little, but I really don't remember having much difficulty.......
