AbstractA system for mounting a fan shroud to a radiator assembly comprises a fan shroud having a general profile defining at least one fan shroud slot aligned along a first axis. A fan shroud mount is carried by the radiator assembly. The fan shroud mount has a general profile defining at least one fan shroud mount slot aligned along a second axis which is perpendicular to the first axis of the fan shroud slot. A cage nut is utilized for mounting the fan shroud with the fan shroud mount. The fan shroud slot and the fan shroud mount slot are designed for overlapping orientation. This overlapping orientation enables the fan shroud fastener to be simultaneously received within the fan shroud slot and the fan shroud mount slot. In operation, the fan shroud fastener may move along either the first axis or the second axis for positioning the fan shroud at a desired horizontal and vertical location with respect to the radiator assembly.
