This is the first in a series of DIY’s for the Salvage yard. I teamed up with the folks at Pull A Part used auto parts to help teach how to maximize time at the salvage yard. Today I will show you how to pull an electric cooling fan from a Volkswagen. The vehicle we are using for this diy is a MK4 Jetta. Cooling fan failures on a MK4 is somewhat common. This is a pretty easy DIY that only requires basic hand tools.
