Post Mk4 Polo - Cooling fan not working Reply with quote
Hi

My Mk4 Polo overheated today because the cooling fan is not working. I have checked the fuses. The Haynes manual suggests disconnecting the cooling fan thermostatic switch and bridging the relevant contacts in the wiring plug. Trouble is I can't find the switch. Haynes says it is mounted on the left-hand inner wing. Not sure which is left side in their convention. Is this on the coolant reservoir side? Any tips on how to locate the switch would be appreciated.

Is it easy to replace the cooling fan motor? (It looks quite cramped in there). If so, is EuroParts the best bet for a competitively priced unit in the UK?

Best regards

David

I am a VW specialist in Bermuda, these cooling fans are a big problem. I have replaced over 150 of them. Unplug the fan from underneath and hook it up direct to a battery, do both speeds. High and low. The quickest way to check the fan is start the car and turn on the A/C , check and see if the fan comes on. If not than the fan is finished.
