    Where are you?

    I presume you have the correct Viscous Fan removal spanner? Not really easy without it, perhaps someone near you would have one to lend you.

    Mine cost me £12 from Halfords and after its single use sits in my toolbox.

    Oh and remember its reverse thread. I know its already been said on here, but worth repeating. I knew it and still wasted a good 10 minutes trying to turn it the conventional way only to give up that evening, then in the morning remember and take a few seconds to undo it.... :lol:

    Why do you need to take the fan off to replace the PAS pump ?

    For the sheared off black screw, use a rad bleed screw or a blank, PTFE tape on job done!

    Calm down mate ! It doesnt NEED to come off to change the PAS pump at all. Done the job multiple times and never needed to . If you want it out the way,thats up to you,but it doesnt NEED to come off for that reason.Just like you dont need to make posts in that tone.

    I am a professional superviser for boatengines and must react on your.......besserwisser bull****.
    I just taken out the pump of my -98 300 Tdi.
    Your posts are not only inadekvat, it is aslo rude, unpolite and does not even have the slighest guidence.
    Sorry, but I do not believe you ever done one on any late 300 Tdi unless you like to crawl on the ground and get dirty and have the oil raining on you.
    The reasons to take the fan off are, to start with, get some space and not hurt or get hurt by the fan blades.
    It is also irresponsible not to undo the fan, drain the cooling a little and pump out the oil if some left and then
    put a big can under the engine to catch she spill.
    So herefore I would say, YES it is needed to take the fan off so you can take the front cover out as well.
    To add to anyone who like to do this job clean and without acting like an ape under the car a little tip
    is that before you start the work; clean the area, especially the oil hoses and connections, The top of thu steering house to avoid dirt when later on bleeding. Also o ease the loosing of the hp oilconnection (16mm spanner) put the frame back on the pump with one of the 10mm SHORT bolts in a position so it is not in the way for the 16mm spanner. Then you can easy fit a wrench and hold the pump steady when you loose the pump.
    According to my expierence today it is very easy also to loosen the holder for the oilreservoir, loosen the hose going to the pump and let that (one "clip" halfways) hose follow the pump out. If it is clean it is a pleasure.
    Best regards from Stockholm in Sweden.

    Used to have a Mamod steam engine when I was a kid. They are great. It wasn't in a boat, though.
