1968 – 1979 VW 1600 Transporter Fan and Dynamo Removal and Replacement

The fan and generator have a common shaft and to separate them they must first be removed together from the engine. Remove the fan belt. Disconnect the battery to prevent accidental short circuits, remove the air cleaner and then disconnect the wires from the top of the generator. Tag the wires so that you know where to replace them.

The generator is clamped to the pedestal by means of a metal strap. Undo the clamping bolt at the right and push the strap off forwards. If the engine is out of the car it is a good idea to slacken the fan nut before undoing this strap. The locking notch in the fan belt pulley can then be used to hold the shaft whilst the nut is slackened off. Put the fan bet pulley back on if you already taken it off.
