rag ingestion-cooling fan

Engine

Model: 911SC, Year:1980, Mileage:70,000, Type of use:Street use only
While cleaning engine bay of my 1980 911SC I Left a small rag in the bay and forgot about it. I have driven the car and then discovered my negligence. I retreived all the fragments I could find. I have noticed that my engine temp is a little higher than normal and suspect that the cooling fan sucked in some fragments and they are impeding my cooling system. Is there a way to remove any debris from behind the fan without removing it and the alternator? Can I insert a garden hose and gently flush the area withwater without damaging any electrics? None of the manuals I have describe the anatomy behind the fan. Your prompt response will help me get back on the road
