Replacing the engine fan on a Saturn Ion is rather challenging compared to other vehicles. Tighten the battery hold down bracket bolts to 15 ft foot pounds (20 Nm) of torque.6. Replace the battery insulating cover. Reinstall the fan control module by sliding it down into the brackets, then reconnect first the positive, and then the negative battery cables.

4. Plug the fan's electrical connectors back into the retainers and back into the retaining sleeve. Change the wiring harness on the clamp on the fan shroud and corner the pusher fan harness back in the routing tabs on the fan housing.
5. Construct positive the battery tray is Disinfected, then reinstall the battery and the battery hold down/fan control module bracket.
