Currently, Service Manuals indicate that the Motor and Fan Assembly-Engine Cooling (-8C607-) should/can be serviced at the component level: Engine Cooling Fan Motor (-8K621-), Shroud (-8146-), and Fan Blade (-8600-). This information is incorrect. The Motor and Fan Assembly-Engine Cooling (-8C607-) should only be serviced as an assembly. The assembly is dynamically balanced at the Original Equipment Manufacturer and should not be disassembled into its component parts. If the assembly is serviced at the component level, the assembly balance could be adversely affected, and a possible durability and Noise/Vibration/Harshness (NVH) issue may arise.
Service only the Motor and Fan Assembly-Engine Cooling (-8C607-). Do not service the Engine Cooling Fan Motor (-8K621-), Shroud (-8146-), or the Fan Blade (-8600-). Servicing only the assembly will eliminate durability and NVH issues related to component replacement. Refer to the following text for details.
Electric Cooling Fan Blades (-8600-), Motors (-8K621-), and Shrouds (-8146-) will no longer be serviced separately. These components will only be serviced in Cooling Fan Module Assemblies (-8C607-). Refer to the Ford Part Manuals Base (-8C607-) for part number.
