    TD5 Fan bearing replacement

    Hi, just about to take on pulling the fan hub to replace the sandbox (bearing) behind, but dont have the fan hub holder tool..
    I live in Adelaide so was wondering if there is an SA member willing to loan it to me for a weekend ?
    Cheers

    If you have no luck finding someone with the tool, It's quite easy to knock up a crude tool yourself. If you have any flat bar laying around....

    Cool.
    Don't forget to put the bearing in the freezer overnight, prior to fitting. TD5 Fan bearing replacement

    Use loctite bearing retainer on it as well. I've seen a few spin in the housing
    It doesn't leak oil, Its sweating power

    AFAIR, I just used a big screwdriver between 2 bolts while undoing a third and so on.

    I can give that a go, but from other posts it looked like the fan hub is threadlocked onto the threaded shaft, so it takes a fair effort to crack that, so the bolt on hub holder is the tool of choice...
    if thats not the case, that wil be great

    OK so you have never had the fan off. It took me about 7 hours to get mine off first time as some ****** had threadlocked it on. It should undo by putting the big spanner on then giving it a sharp tap or two with a hammer. I have put never sieze on mine . By all means if that fails make up a tool. I made one from 20MMx20MM angle and it still bent.
    I had to also use some gentle heat AFAIR.
    There is a how to on how to reverse the boss and pull the bearing out after removing the circlip on the pommy D2 site.
    My new bearing slipped right in with warming the timing case with a MAPgas torch and placing the bearing in the freezer.
    Regards PhilipA

    Thanks Philip,
    Viscous fan hub has been off many times (belt, tensioner pully, water pump, hoses, EGR bypass, head gasket...), but Ive not taken the flange off the shaft before to do the bearing, so it's that I'll presumably need the tool for.
    Good tips re haet and cold, so I'll do that .
    Cheers
    Simon
