    Remove two bolts on the fan shroud, pull up on shroud to release lower "nubs", unbolt (4) bolts on fan housing, remove fan and shroud together. Don't forget to remove the overflow tubing before removing the shroud. Also the 4 fan housing bolts can be a royal PITA as you need to hold the housing while trying to loosen the bolts. I found that pipe wrench on the narrow part between the fan and the bolt surface worked quite well.

    If you want "real" instructions find the instructions for the Flex-a-lite Tacoma fan kit. It has the removal procedure there. Or find the on-line FSM link.

    FYI, I installed the Flex-a-lite kit on my Tacoma, definitely not cheap, but plug and play. Well not quite, the appropriate wiring still needs to be tapped into.

    would it be fine if you hook it up the fan to the battery and get a switch for it

    If you want to run it totally manually then yes, but sounds dangerous to me. You miss watching the temp gauge just once and ....
