Put the fan shroud in first. At least most of the way. Then snap the bottle in place. There is a medium size hose that snaps to the bottom of the shroud from the bottle. Do all that before the fan is secured to the pump. There is a small overflow hose that needs to be routed through the shroud and connected to the top of the radiator before its all secured. Its a bit of an arm wrestle to get it all done.

I dont know about the electric fan. But if you look at the shroud there are 2-3 tabs on each side. Those have to line up with the metal work, and it is important that they all go together. You may need to wrestle the tabs past the radiator hose. Also, at the top left and right corners of the shroud, there are two holes about 5/16" or 6-7 mm. When you get the shroud in place you should have two plastic rivets that go there and hold it all together.
