Hi,my name is mike and I will assist you with your question. I'm sorry you have had to wait so long.
To test the fans turn the key to the on position but do not crank the vehicle. Push in the a/c button and turn the a/c control to position 1 open the hood and both fans should be running.

To remove the fans.

The passenger fan comes out through the bottom and the drivers fan comes out of the top.
They are held in by torx head bolts. For the drivers side you just remove the fan harness and the bolts and slide it out of the top. For the passenger fan the bottom engine cover battery and the battery tray has to come off then remove the bolts and harness and slide it out of the bottom. Of course the vehicle has to be raised for this. Another way you can test the fans is with a volt meter at the harness. There should be 12 volts with the key in the on position and the a/c on.
