    Can't seem to find any info here about the steps to replace one. Is it hard? Any help would be great.

    stock, for now
    4 nuts and the blades come off the clutch..then remove the clutch from the motor itself. It should be fairly easy.

    Thought I'd bring this back, since it's the only thread found with info about replacing the fan clutch.

    Has anyone done it? Is there a torque spec that I would have to go by?

    I did it but I'm not sure about torque specs. I just tighten them down good and they have been fine for the last 3 years. It's a little tight getting in there but you can do it with only taking minium stuff off.
