Hi, I'm Don from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to remove and reinstall the left hand or driver's side radiator fan in this 2005 Hyundai Elantra, pretty much the same for any 2001 to 2006 Elantra. The only tool you'll need is either a 10mm wrench or a 10mm socket with a ratchet.

I'm removing the radiator overflow hose from its clip, and pulling it aside, and while I'm doing the clip, the power to the fan. Put the clip on top, pulling that aside. I'm locating the two 10mm bolts, right here and right here. I'm going to push the radiator fan just a little bit away from the radiator and pull up and out. I've located the connector for the fan and I'm going to remove it by pressing down on the tab. I've located the 10mm bolt that I'm going to take out here. With this fan, I'm going to push it away from the radiator just a little bit, pull it out and then slide it over underneath the upper radiator hose and out.

I'm reinstalling these fans. These fans tested fine and worked perfectly, but a fan from 1A Auto is going to be an exact replacement fit. I just want to point out the two tabs on the bottom of the fan. Those are going to slide into tabs at the bottom of the radiator. This fan slides in and over and then into the two tabs. I'll reinstall my 10mm and reconnect my harness. We've got the two tabs on the bottom here and they're going to slide into two tabs at the bottom of the radiator. Reinstall my bolts and I'm going to plug the connector back in and put the radiator drain hose back on.
