Please forgive my lack of knowledge but... how does one remove the intercooler fan from the intercooler in order to get at the EGR valve housing on a 2005 Fortwo .8L cdi model? With my engine that fan motor is virtually sitting on the EGR valve restricting access to it. I don't see any screws or clips or bolts or anything holding it on.

I replaced one some years ago and I can't recall the process but the EGR did not interfere in any way.

I don’t remember well but I think there is some type of clips along the top edge underneath the black wire loom.  Then you lift the top of the intercooler and pull up to remove.  Send a pm to smart142 and he will be able to answer as he does this regularly.

You need to slide a flat tool down those clips to release the tangs that hold the fan onto the intercooler framework.....it takes some patience even using flat screw drivers. I used flat long screw drivers but they damage the clips eventually, better to fabricate up some flat metal blade type tools instead. You also must do either two at a time or all 4 together to get it easily around the EGR...it's very tight.....some say to lower engine to allow more space which does make life far more pleasant.  Still a nasty job if you don't do it almost daily like Glenn does.  Hope this helps and is correct as I have only done two so far. And it's been a while since I have done them.

Something like this Joint Knife only smaller (I have one that is only 1" wide) would be strong and thin enough to do the job.  If you have an old one, just grind it down to fit.
