So to save yourself money in the long run, not to mention the brand new radiator you're probably planning to install, replace the damn fan and fan clutch

i searched it for you and took LESS than 5 minutes

^fan clutch


EDIT: You'll also need a new waterpump if there's a ball bearing missing.

In shorter words, dont remove it, replace the broken stuff.

Have piece of mind
