Chillin

The primary cooling fan on the Civic decided that it wasn't loved and took its own life on Harvey's commute home.

The night before Special Olympics in Orlando.

Thag to the rescue!

Honda sure didn't leave much room to extract the fan, motor and shroud.

DO NOT FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE SERVICE MANUAL!



These instructions work.  He doesn't have an airbox in his way, but that was just an irritation.

Thanks to JT for being a third and fourth hand when needed.

Thanks to Marv for soldering the wires because the Autozone brand fan we could get tonight had two leads, but no plug.  If I'd had time to wait for delivery, I could have gotten a whole shroud and fan assembly for not all that much more that had the correct plug.

  1. Un-possible. I've been repeatedly informed that Hondas never require any kind of maintenance or repair for at least 400k miles and if you say otherwise you a a domestic car loving heathen and your subscription to Consumer Guide will be revoked and "Click and Clack" will make fun of you.

    1. How do you know this wasn't at 400,000 miles?
