1. Is it hard to remove the automatic mech fan?

no. i can do it in less than 30 seconds using an adjustable wrench and a screwdriver.

2. I read one install that required drain both the radiator and an engine plug, but I have read most that just say drain the radiator...do I have to do both?

ideally should do both.

3. Should I replace the various sensors?

there's a fan switch in the lower hose and a level sensor in the expansion tank.

PS There was a large puddle of coolant under my car...blah
face bavaria before starting any work
