Hello.
I am an un-official Cruze mechanic by default (girlfriends car).
Been working on her car often lately and could use a little help.
Does anyone now how to remove the front cooling fan?
Hers has died. Looks like it should be easy but can't figure out how it's clipped in.
Been searching the internet for days.
Any help I GREATLY appreciated.
Cheers!

Awesome! So I don't have to drain the coolant?
Also do you know how to undo the clips?
I'm afraid to break them off.
I really appreciate your help!
