I think there is a thread on here where someone changed the alternator and in the course of doing it they removed the fan to give more access. I think it is either in the DIY section or as a thread, it had pictures as well!!!!!
If I remember correctly it is quite easy and straight forward to do........

To be honest I wish the DIY section was purely for work that people had done and described with pictures or procedures/write ups.
It would be even better if it could be indexed as well. Major components or modules etc.
We have so much useful data and excellent write ups, but as the forum has grown, it is so much more difficult to search and find particular examples......
As people come into the forum they come across issues already experienced but many searches do not come up with the help they need............. Well these are my thoughts, would be interesting to know the Forum Moderators thoughts on the issue...........

650 fan shroud removal

Hello all,
I replaced my o6 e64 fan shroud about 10 months ago.
Fan and shroud are one unit.
Once you remove all the other brackets and air filter etc. you will notice two hoses connecting through a hole built into the shroud, located on the right side (drivers side u.s. Cars) down close to the bottom.This is the supply and return hoses for the oil cooler. The oil cooler is a radiator that is mounted to the inside of the fan shroud. The hoses disconnect Easley enough, a simple flange retains each hose and the flange is held in place with one small bolt. Inside the hose connections is a rubber "O" ring. In my case I had to replace one because it was damaged. Here is the interesting part, you are going to get oil, no stopping it, even if you drain your oil you will never get the oil out of the oil cooler, the hoses, when disconnected, can be elevated to above the level of the rest of the motor.
All mounting bolts are at the top of the shroud, the shroud fits Into a "slot" at the bottom, the shroud has a flap on both sides of it, one is permenant the other has a hinge (drivers side u.s. cars) this hinge you will swing for removal and installation. It came out easyer than it went back in.
Good luck
