Default Hydraulic fan motor noise

I knew this time was coming. But I am not in a good place to have the work done at the moment. My hydraulic fan is starting to make little noises well it’s running. With the engine stopped and I push it and it’s normal operating direction I hear these nice little tinkle noises. When I push it in reverse direction it runs nice and smooth. How long do I dare push this thing?
I have a replacement hydraulic motor so the main thing is to find someone to help with the install.
I’m currently in Bonney Lake Washington but I’m heading up toward blame on the other side of Seattle.

Can I replace it myself ?
I do not see how to get the fan off.
How much do I have to disassemble?

I spoke to someone from this shop today north of Seattle in Mt. Vernon, they said they work first come, first serve. I may be there Monday.

I’m going to get it into the shop on Monday and see how they feel about doing the work.
With the hourly rate they quoted I’m sure they’ll be happy to take it on.
My biggest issue is I just don’t like being away from my bus.

I assume with the Freightliner shop, they would not let us stay in the bus.
The gust-a-mit was 10 hours plus.

She asked if I was a full-timer and I said yes. I'm assuming of course but plan to stay with the bus.
