The fan on a Mercedes (or Dodge) sprinter makes things complicated for repairs and if you look on forums or on YouTube, almost everyone has a hack for removing the fan. These hacks can be dangerous and have the potential to damage other parts under your hood.
Top reasons to remove the fan OTR:
– A snapped belt
– Old pulley leading to a snapped belt
Tips and tricks are usually used for removal since a traditional fan clutch removal tool that you can rent from an auto parts store will NOT fit your sprinter.
Our drivers found the exact tool here and swear by it, you can also find a set with the tool included here – They keep it in their trucks along with extra belts, pulleys (and much more) if needed in emergencies, which is essential as an expeditor.
